Triphenylmethyl radical

The triphenylmethyl radical, for example, is so stable that, in a solution at room temperature, it is at equilibrium with a dimer even if the radical makes up only two percent of the equilibrium mixture. However, the formation of hexaphenylethane is most likely prevented by the large steric hindrance.
