We propose "superphenalenyl" as a novel π-conjugated planar hydrocarbon radical. Theoretical calculation was performed to evaluate its stability compared to phenalenyl and trioxotriangulene. The result of spin distribution and reaction energy supports its high stability. Molecular properties of this radical are also discussed based on orbital energies.
