  • $\begingroup$ @bon I see your point - missed the difference between benzene and inorganic benzene. $\endgroup$ – Agriculturist Aug 11 '16 at 17:55

"Inorganic benzene" also known as borazine has a molecular formula of $\ce{B3N3H6}$.

It is a planar structure. Both B and N are sp2 hybridised. It is called "inorganic benzene" as it is isoelectronic with benzene.
