Let G be a molecular graph with characteristic polynomial φ(G, x). The leading eigenvalue of G is the largest root of the equation φ(G, x) = O. In this paper, the hexagonal chain (unbranched catacondensed benzenoid molecule) with minimum leading eigenvalue among fully angular hexagonal chains having a given number of hexagons is determined.
