Abstract: Survival of ring currents in planar monocycles subject to [2+2] addition of one, two, three, etc., even-carbon polyene clamping groups is governed by a parity rule. If addition is across positions (i(1),i(1)+1), (i(2),i(2)+1),...,(i(j),i(j),+1) for clamps 1, 2,...,j, then, if any of i(1),i(2),...,i(j) is odd, current is quenched in the central ring; if all of i(1),i(2),..., i(j) are even, the central ring current survives.
