Let G be a planar embedded 2-connected graph. Then the vertices of its resonance graph R(G) are the 1-factors of G, two 1-factors being adjacent whenever their symmetric difference is a bounded face of G. For a class of graphs containing the chemically important catacondensed benzenoid graphs we show that the resonance graphs are median. In particular, if G belongs to this class, R(G) has an isometric embedding into Qf, where / is the number of bounded faces of G. ©2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
