Designed to assist chemists in integrating the results of calculations on molecules and ions into their general body of chemical knowledge. Contains recent contributions from theoretical and computational chemistry to the development of the concept of aromaticity (antiaromaticity) and its expansion into new areas such as organometallic and cluster compounds and three-dimensional structures. Updates the modern status of aromaticity and covers basic principles and experimental applications.
Criteria of Aromaticity and Antiaromaticity.

Delocalization Modes and Electron-Count Rules.

Annulenes, Monocyclic Conjugated Ions, and Annulenoannulenes.




In-Plane and Radial Aromaticity.

Three-Dimensional Aromaticity.

Spherical Aromaticity.

Is the Physical Nature of Aromaticity Known?.
