Yu.zhao aromaticity in sandwich complexes and the effection of noncolvalent interaction to aromatic ring

This project includes two parts, one of it is the difference of aromaticity when the ring is in free state and in sandwich complexes and the other is about the influences of anion-pi interaction and cation-pi interaction to aromatic systerm.
