The molecular structures and energies of hydrocarbons containing very short nominally single C-C bonds were calculated by high-level ab initio calculations. The 'squeeze energies' (SqE) pertaining to the shortening of central C-C bonds are found to correlate very well with central short C-C bond lengths.
