# Is phosphorine (C₅H₅P) aromatic?

Phophorine seems aromatic as it has 6 conjugated electrons. But the answer given is that it is not. This seems odd since pyridine has a similar structure and is also aromatic. Thus I ask is phospohrine aromatic or not?

• Phosphinine is aromatic, but somewhat less than benzene. – mykhal Nov 23 '18 at 16:23
