The largest Huckel aromatic molecular wheel

Prof. Harry Anderson's group is well known for synthesizing large and complex molecules. They bagged the tag for making the largest aromatic ring with 78 pi electrons. The simple Huckel's ground state aromaticity rule still holds for such extent! Now, they themselves have broken this record, by synthesizing an aromatic wheel with 162 pi electrons.
