In this study, the theoretical analysis of the strain energy of helicene-containing carbon nanobelt is reported. It was found that the combined method of linear regression analysis and suitable homodesmotic reactions can successfully estimate the strain energies of various helicene-containing carbon nanobelts including previously synthesized chiral (18,12) carbon nanobelts.
