Snipped silliness? Why? Chemists are allowed a sense of humour! Also, what I put in is true, arsole combined with six benzene ring WOULD be called sexibenzarsole, and I also know that there have been attempts to synthesise it. Fork me 16:58, 21 September 2006 (UTC)
- Chemists have the best sense of humour. Who else would name a neurotoxin Conantokin? — riana_dzasta wreak havoc-damage report 16:01, 7 October 2006 (UTC)
luckily this is not well known enough for it to be a big target. because it is one helluva target.... Omlp 01:44, 24 April 2007 (UTC)
Funny as it would be, 6 benzene rings on anything is "hexa phenyl", -CH2ph is only hexa benzyl, wherever you plan on finding 6 sites on a 5 membered ring.... shoving two on the Arsenic would give you 1,1,2,3,4,5-hexabenzyl-1H-1-llambda-5-arsole which really doesn't have the same ring to it... You could stick six arsoles together as a hexamer and that would be sexiarsole though.
> this is wrong. a phenyl substituent is C6H5, and yes, benzyl is CH2C6H5. however, 'benz-' here denotes a fused benzene ring. not sure about the use of 'sexi-' instead of 'hexa-', though... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 20:50, 15 May 2010 (UTC)
- Arsindole may be the preferred name, but the name "benzarsole" is used in at least two genuine articles, Chem. Pharm. Bull. (1994) 42(7) 1437-1441 and Angew. Chem. (1990) 102 677-80. ChemDraw also interprets the name to give the correct structure.
