Abstract

We obtain examples of knotted hypothetical molecular bond graphs which are achiral but have no topologically accessible symmetry presentations. Such a graph is one which can be deformed to its mirror image, yet it cannot first be deformed to a position which can then be rotated to its mirror image.
