Abstract

The synthesis, isolation, and characterizations of sp-hybridized carbon materials remain challenging due to their high reactivities. Recently in Science, Kaiser et al. synthesized the first pure carbon ring, cyclo[18]carbon, and demonstrated its bonding structure of alternating single and triple bonds.
