A theoretical investigation is made to interpret the Na hyperfine splittings in electron spin resonance of the aromatic-Na system in solution. In calculating the odd electron density on the Na nucleus, one assumes the charge transfer mechanism that the odd electron, in the first approximation, accommodated in the π-molecular orbital of the aromatic migrates to the Na atom through overlapping between orbitals. The result obtained shows fairly good agreement with observation.
