Chemistry and Pharmacology
-Stable π-conjugated anions are formed in the reaction of π-conjugated systems with alkali metals. Reactivity, aromatic properties and aggregation of the anions are described. Bowl-shaped and fullerene anions, as well as helicene and planar polycyclic anions, are discussed vis-à-vis their aromaticity and charge delocalization pattern.
