Abstract:

Using quantum chemical methodology, we reinvestigate the aromaticity of the much debated arsole, using the newly developed gauge-including magnetically induced currents (GIMIC) method. GIMIC provides a quantitative measure of the induced ring current strength, showing arsole to be moderately aromatic. Comparison is made with pyrrole, phosphole, and cyclopentadiene.

Keywords: aromaticity, arsenic, heterocycles, small ring systems, quantum chemistry
