The magnetic properties of the compound (Az2) we have reported earlier were investigated by using NICSπ,zz and NICS-XY scans by Stanger. His conclusions are that the seven-membered ring in Az2 is not antiaromatic but non-aromatic, thus the small paratropic values are the result of three diatropic moieties that surround this ring. Based on the same data, we discuss the ring current at the new seven-membered ring carefully.
