Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • Benzene ring (Chem) a closed chain or ring, consisting of six carbon atoms, each with one hydrogen atom attached, regarded as the type from which the aromatic compounds are derived. This ring formula is provisionally accepted as representing the probable constitution of the benzene molecule, C6H6, and as the type on which its derivatives are formed.

In news:

FUNDAMENTAL UNIT Cycloparaphenylenes (top), made by Bertozzi and coworkers in 9-, 12-, and 18-benzene-ring sizes, are basic building blocks (highlighted bonds) of armchair carbon nanotubes (bottom).

In science:

The materials in this series are composed of stacks of chains containing three (anthracene) to five (pentacene) benzene rings.
Turning insulators into superconductors
Notice that F-L make also a chemical pair through the same structural motive – the first possible branching (iso-butane in relation to toluen structural motive). Here lies the reason why benzene ring is axcluded from the set of aromatic AAs.

Since the energy of the twisting mode is very low, one may wonder if the benzene ring is free to rotate at high temperatures.

Most of other modes falling in the energy range of our NIS measurement are one of the twisting, stretching, breathing, bending and wagging motions of the benzene rings.
