 Molecular jellyfish: A new family of bowl-shaped aromatic compounds swims into view (see picture). Quite unlike true jellyfish, chrysaoroles possess a rigid skeleton, which is assembled from fused carbazole units. Their synthesis involves a fold-in step to convert a macrocyclic precursor into the bowl-shaped target molecule.
