Title: 1,3,5-Trioxanetrione  
Author: World Heritage Encyclopedia
Language: English
Subject: 1,3-Dioxetanedione, Tetracarbon dioxide
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Molecular formula C3O6
Molar mass 132.03 g mol−1
Except where noted otherwise, data are given for materials in their standard state (at 25 °C (77 °F), 100 kPa)

The chemical compound 1,3,5-trioxanetrione, or 1,3,5-trioxacyclohexane-2,4,6-trione is a hypothetical oxide of carbon with formula C3O6. It can be considered a cyclic trimer of carbon dioxide (CO2) or as a triple ketone of 1,3,5-trioxane (1,3,5-trioxacyclohexane).

Theoretical calculations indicate that the compound is unstable at room temperature (half-life less than 8 seconds); but may be stable at -196 °C.[1]
