ISMSM Image(s) of the Month!

Crystal structure of of a new nanographene consisting of 96 carbon atoms plus side groups. The molecules obtain on average 1.5 electrons from potassium atoms and show a unique dimeric structure with complex magnetism. Top view (a) and side view (b). Hydrogen atoms are omitted for clarity. The inner core is highlighted in cyan. The work is a collaboration among three research groups including one from I(SM)2.
