The Historical Development of Aromatic Structures

  • K. Schofield

Abstract

No problem in organic chemistry has attracted interest so unfailingly as that of accounting for the properties of aromatic compounds by means of chemical structures. Many accounts have been given of the protracted feelings towards the true solution, but only in the last thirty years have the grounds for that solution been established.
