    Abstract

    A ground-state triplet diphenylcarbene derivative, 2,2′,4,4′,6,6′-hexabromodiphenylcarbene 1 was synthesized and generated to be a model for chemically stable organic high-spin molecules. Electron Spin Resonance spectroscopy showed that 1 was a triplet molecule in the ground state and survived up to room temperature in the crystal state. 1 is the first stable triplet carbene in fluid solution at low temperature and in the crystal state at room temperature.
