"Aromaticity is like conjugation, but extra stable."
"In fact, the qualitative meaning of aromaticity is "like benzene".
Therefore, since benzene is considered as the prototypical aromatic molecule, then graphite, and par excellence graphene,should be thought of as more aromatic than benzene, since the
resonance energy per π electron of graphite is greater than that
"Now aromaticity is like an overdimensioned phantom, which
haunts an incredibly vast segment of the literature. The concept has been useful to extend benzene particular chemical behavior to many other, even quite dissimilar structures. Yet, has this changed chemistry in a way to gain effective information about molecules?"
A paper about a variety of topics in theoretical chemistry.
" Aromaticity is like the icing on a cake. Icing contributes only a little to holding the cake together, but it is the most delicious part."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
