From the Little Brother of Benzene to Deltic Liquid Crystals
From the Little Brother of Benzene to Deltic Liquid Crystals
Cyclopropenium cations are aromatic three-membered rings and belong to Hückel type aromatic systems. Thus, they are the smaller brothers of the well-known benzene. In contrast to benzene cyclopropenium cations were considered for a long time as curiosities without any practical relevance. However, in recent years their potential as organocatalysts has been recognized.
