Benzotriyne or cyclocarbon is a hypothetical chemical compound, an allotrope of carbon with molecular formula C6. The molecule is a ring of six carbon atoms, connected either by alternating triple and single bonds or by double bonds. It is, therefore, a potential member of the cyclo[n]carbon family.
Recent investigations have concluded that benzotriyne is unlikely to exist due to the large angle strain. A likely alternative would be a cyclical cumulene called cyclohexahexaene, which should itself be a metastable species.
