Abstract

Pronounced bond length alternation in the central aromatic ring is the eye-catching structural feature of triepoxytriphenylene 1. By contrast, no significant bond length alternation is observed in the linearly bisannelated compounds 2 and 3. The key difference is ascribed to the position of annelations with the bicyclic units (Image Presented).
