Boundary Uniqueness of Fusenes

, , and

It is shown that a geometrically planar fusene is uniquely determined by its boundary edge code. Surprisingly, the same conclusion is not true in general but holds for geometrically planar and non-planar fusenes with at most 25 hexagons, except for two particular cases. In addition, it is proved that two fusenes with the same boundary edge code have the same number of hexagons.
