We report a closed-form formula for the Zhang-Zhang polynomial (also known as ZZ polynomial or Clar covering polynomial) of an important class of elementary peri-condensed benzenoids Rb (n(1), n(2), m(1), m(2)), usually referred to as ribbons. A straightforward derivation is based on the recently developed interface theory of benzenoids [Langner and Witek, MATCH Commun. Math. Comput. Chem. 2020, 84, 143-176]. The discovered formula provides compact expressions for various topological invariants of Rb (n(1), n(2), m(1), m(2)): the number of Kekule structures, the number of Clar covers, its Clar number, and the number of Clar structures. The last two classes of elementary benzenoids, for which closed-form ZZ polynomial formulas remain to be found, are hexagonal flakes O (k, m, n) and oblate rectangles Or (m, n).
