English The aromatic/antiaromatic behavior of the Jahn–Teller (JT) active benzene cation and anion has been investigated using Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations of Nuclear Independent Chemical Shifts (NICS) and magnetic susceptibility. NICS parameters have been scanned along the Intrinsic Distortion Path (IDP) for the benzene cation showing antiaromaticity which decreases with increasing deviation from D6h to D2h symmetry. Changes in NICS values along the IDP from D6h to C2v in the benzene anion revealed non-aromatic character.
