(Figure Equotion Present) Piecing the puzzle together: A simple model of stability for hybrid carbon-conjugated materials is revealed and computationally verified. Based on this model, a simple "jigsaw-puzzle" strategy towards the design for a family of highly viable hybrid carbon-conjugated materials is proposed (see picture; C green, N blue, H white).
