Thisconjecture was disproved in 1995 by Arduengo's group, who obtaineda derivative without that double bond.The thermodynamical stability in this compound, and the role ofsteric protection in preventing dimerisation, has been a topic ofsome dispute..In 1996, Alder and others synthesized the first acyclicpersistent carbene,thus showing that a cyclic backbone was not necessary for theirstability.

Arduengo reported thesynthesis of a stable, isolated, crystalline carbene.Persistent carbenes are still fairly reactive substances, andmany will undergo , sometimes reversibly.Persistent carbenes can exist in the or the , withthe singlet state carbenes being more stable.
