Hexagonal Multicrown Tori – Multicrown Benzene

Carbon Wheels

All these structures are built with hexagons that represent Benzene, Coronene, Triphenylene etc. as such they are models of carbon structures (Tubes and Polyhedra). The only exception is the green polyhedron which is a model of a Dodecahedral Triquinacene molecule.
