Abstract

Corannulene is a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon with the chemical formula C₂₀H₁₀. The molecule consists of a cyclopentane ring surrounded by five benzene rings with a bowl-shaped geometry due to its strain. Synthesizing corannulene molecules allows for technological advances that are time and cost-effective. Examples of technology that corannulene can be incorporated into are organic light-emitting diodes, solar panels, and battery enhancements.
