48_30b/2009Inside Cover: 1,1,8,8-Tetramethyl[8](2,11)teropyrenophane: Half of an Aromatic Belt and a Segment of an (8,8) Single-Walled Carbon Nanotube (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 30/2009)

Large, nonplanar PAHs (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) are important because they can be viewed as discrete substructures of the newer allotropes of carbon nanotubes. In their Communication on page 5487 ff., G. J. Bodwell and co-workers present a concise synthesis of a (2,11)teropyrenophane, which features a 36-carbon polynuclear aromatic system. Such a system structurally resembles a segment of an (8,8) single-walled carbon nanotube.
