Abstract

THE structure of the coronene molecule, C24H12, is of particular interest in view of its peculiarly high symmetry (Fig. 1). With regard to electron distribution and bond-lengths, the structure should be somewhat intermediate between benzene and graphite. The optical and magnetic anisotropies of the molecule should also be of interest, and as a first stage in the accurate study of all these properties it is necessary to make a precise determination of the crystal structure.
