The Detailed Electronic Structure of Carbocyclic Molecules and the Concept of Superaromaticity
The literature on the electronic structure of carbon cyclic compounds such as cyclopropane, cyclohexane, benzene, etc., is so enormous that citation of some works but not others is mandatory and, thus, unfair.1 The essential point is that many aspects of the bonding of these molecules have been successfully dealt with but a fundamental understanding of the electronic structure of these molecules still eludes us. Why do I say so?
