Examines aromaticity through the historical and conceptual framework of simple molecular orbital theory. This approach is unique in that theoretical considerations are integrated with experimental observations. The criteria for aromatic, antiaromatic and nonaromatic compounds are discussed in with reference to benzene, cyclobutadiene and cyclooctatetraene. Also includes a chapter on the likely classes of aromatic compounds.
