Conformational analysis of aromatic molecules

  • A. I. Kitaigorodskii
  • V. G. Dashevskii


The mechanical model used in conformation calculations is discussed. A method is developed for strained aromatic systems with possible out-of-plane deformations. An approximate analysis is presented to reveal criteria for planarity.
