Abstract

Abstract MO calculations on the recently-prepared dibenzo[a,c]biphenylene (III) show that its stability should be intermediate between those of dibenzo[b,h]biphenylene (I) 1 and dibenzo[a,i]biphenylene (II), 2 previously studied by Ali and Coulson. 3 Similar work on the as yet unprepared sesquibiphenylenes IV and V shows that V should have a higher resonance energy and be less reactive than IV.
