It is well known that singlet state aromaticity is quite insensitive to substituent effects, in the case of monosubstitution. In this work, we use density functional theory (DFT) calculations to examine the sensitivity of triplet state aromaticity to substituent effects. For this purpose, we chose the singlet state antiaromatic cyclopentadienyl cation, antiaromaticity of which reverses to triplet state aromaticity, conforming to Baird's rule. The extent of (anti)aromaticity was evaluated bydoi:10.3390/chemistry3030055 fatcat:xuvy4argwvgzler7fxmf4p6ij4
