Abstract

Within the framework of the Huckel molecular orbital theory, certain linear models are developed to express the contribution of peripheral circuits of cyclacenes into their total pi -electron energies, which explain why cyclacenes exhibit the cryptoannulenic behavior as their peripheral circuits which are annulenic in character.
