Scientists create the smallest possible 5-ringed molecule, call it olympicene
from Popular Science
Graham Richards of the Royal Society of Chemistry was doodling when he thought making "a molecular structure with three hexagonal rings above two others would make for an interesting synthetic challenge." So Richards and a team of chemists got to work, synthesizing and photographing olympicene with remarkable resolution. The molecule has the smallest possible five-ringed structure and requires some serious hardware to catch a glimpse of.
