Designing new two-dimensional (2D) semiconductors with high carrier mobilities is highly desirable for material innovation, especially when the configuration has novel topological properties. Here, we proposed a first-principles-based design of a 2D crystal, namely a Be2N6 monolayer. In which, each N atom is shared by two neighboring N atoms and one Be atom, forming a novel moiety of benzene-like N-6 rings. Rather than the instability of hexazine, the Be2N6 monolayer has a moderate cohesive energy, good kinetic and thermodynamic stability, due to the stabilization effect of the Be element by forming twelve classical two-centre-two-electron (2c-2e) s-bonds and five multicenter 6c-2e p-bonds. There are ten pi electrons in a unit cell, which satisfies the Huckel rule [4n + 2] (n = 2), indicating the Be2N6 monolayer aromaticity. As a result, the Be2N6 monolayer has an ultra-high mechanical strength of up to 200 J m(-2). Particle-swarm optimization (PSO) computations reveal that a cyclo-N6-containing Be2N6 monolayer is the lowest-energy configuration in 2D forms with a stoichiometry of 1 : 3, and therefore could be synthesized experimentally. Furthermore, the Be2N6 monolayer is an indirect semiconductor with a band gap of 1.71 eV at the hybrid functional level, close to that of the bulk amorphous silicon similar to 1.6 eV widely used in solar cells. At this point, the high electron mobility of up to similar to 10(4) cm(-2) V-1 s(-1) and visible-light absorption of similar to 10(5) cm(-1) are observed for the Be2N6 monolayer. If realized, it will not only enrich the knowledge of the bonding nature of nitrogen but could also have potential applications in electronics and optoelectronics.
