POLYCYCLIC AROMATIC COMPOUNDS, vol.32, no.4, pp.487-502, 2012 (SCI-Expanded)
The present study theoretically deals with furoxan-fused [2,2]paracyclophane systems and some structures possibly involved in their isomerization processes. These intermediate structures are certain di- and tetra-nitroso derivatives and systems having dioxadiazatidine ring(s). Computationally, B3LYP/6-31G(d,p) level of density functional theory has been employed. Certain properties of the systems, such as geometries, energies, and aromaticity of the benzenoid rings, are harvested and discussed.
