Missing relative found: The last representative of the first multi membered fullerene family, C78(4), has been synthesized and isolated. Its connectivity pattern was confirmed by a single-crystal X-ray analysis of its chlorinated derivative C78(4)Cl18 (see picture). The crystal structure also reveals the presence of unusual, short intermolecular chlorine contacts.
