The Smallest "Carbon Nanoring" [5]Cycloparaphenylene ([5]CPP)

Structural Feature

• CPP having the smallest ring size among synthesized other examples

• Cyclic unit structure of fullerene (C60) and [5,5] carbon nanotube

• The same diameter as C60 (0.7 nm)


• Soluble in organic solvents

• Narrow HOMO-LUMO gap comparable with that of C60

Possible Application

• Organic electronics materials

• Raw material for carbon nanoring derivatives, and bottom up synthesis of CNT

• Molecular host materials
