I'm curious about the semi-systematic name given as [12]–Coronaphen. I would have thought the ending should be -ene, signifying an unsaturated hydrocarbon system (c.f Coronene [1] ) - i.e. [12]–Coronaphene. However I'm no expert in naming structures like this, so I'd like to know what guidelines are available Setwig (talk) 12:45, 1 April 2014 (UTC)Setwig
