Abstract

A series of benzannulated N-heterocyclic compounds containing divalent 14 group atoms, C6H4(NR)2EII, E = C, Si, Ge, Sn, Pb, have been studied by various experimental (vibrational and UV-vis spectroscopy) and theoretical (NICS, ISE, ACID) techniques. The methods used confirm 10 π-electron delocalization (aromaticity) in these heterocycles, however, the aromaticity sequences estimated by the criteria based on different physical properties do not coincide.
