40-year Old Unresolved Concept in Chemistry Finally Clarified

Research team led by Professor Dongho Kim (Department of Chemistry, Yonsei University) formulated a three-dimensional structure of a chemical compound which had existed only in two-dimensional space to implement “bicycloaromaticity” and, simultaneously, to solve the problem of “the reversal of aromaticity in a triplet ground state.” The concept of “bicycloaromaticity” had not been resolved in modern chemistry until now.

STUDY IN KOREA AT YONSEI

Humans of Yonsei

“As an engineering major studying in Indonesia, I had always wanted to study and live on a campus with advanced technology. I knew that Korea is one of the highest technology countries in the world with cutting-edge facilities, and I chose Yonsei University because of its technological advancement and offering of convenient tech features on campus; even the cafeteria’s ordering system is modern!"

The good vibe on campus makes me feel really comfortable studying here. One my favorite spots is the ‘no-stress’ lounge room with resting sofas located in the library. You can tell that Yonsei is thoughtful of providing accommodative facilities that meet students’ needs, especially when they need to take a break from studying. I also enjoy the open, free Sinchon area surrounding the campus, which holds festivals and events on weekends. I look forward to spreading the positivity I am experiencing here to my friends when I return to Indonesia.”
