Abstract

The effects of stacking aromatic units on the Verdet constant are analyzed by employing quantum chemistry calculations and are compared to the effects of oligomerization. Building stacked oligomers leads to enhanced Verdet constants, but still smaller than in the corresponding linear oligomers. Further enhancements appear when going from simple to fused-ring polyaromatic compounds.
