Li, Liu and Lu investigated the electronic structures and the possible aromaticity of some 10 r-electron systems, including the dication, at the HF/6-31G level [118]. The optimised S-S bond length of is 210 pm. Based on the analysis of the bonding characteristics in terms of the canonical molecular orbital and the Foster-Boys localized molecular orbital, they concluded that is of weak aromaticity. This is due to the occupation of the weak antibonding MOs. As a consequence, the bond strengths of the 10 r-electron systems decrease with respect to their 6 r-electron counterparts. [Pg.21]

Electron propagator theory generates a one-electron picture of electronic structure that includes electron correlation. One-electron energies may be obtained reliably for closed-shell molecules with the P3 method and more complex correlation effects can be treated with renormalized reference states and orbitals. To each electron binding energy, there corresponds a Dyson orbital that is a correlated generalization of a canonical molecular orbital. Electron propagator theory enables interpretation of precise ab initio calculations in terms of one-electron concepts. [Pg.49]

However, the division of the electron density at the iron nucleus into contributions arising from Is through 4s contributions can be done conveniently at the level of the canonical molecular orbitals. This arises because the iron Is, 2s, and 3s orbitals fall into an orbital energy range where they are well isolated and hence do not mix with any hgand orbital. Hence, the Is, 2s, and 3s contributions are well defined in this way. The 4s contribution then arises typically from several, if not many, molecular orbitals in the valence region that have contributions from the iron s-orbitals. Thus, the difference between the total electron density at the nucleus and... [Pg.155]

Step 1. Norbornadiene C7H8 of symmetry C2V contains 8 CH single, 8 CC single and 2 jr-bonds, occupied by 36 electrons. (We disregard the inner carbon ls-orbitals). Accordingly, a SCF treatment yields 18 bonding canonical molecular orbitals (CMOs)

These conditions determine a unique set of molecular orbitals, the canonical molecular orbitals, (CMO s),

Usually the electronic structure of diatomic molecules is discussed in terms of the canonical molecular orbitals. In the case of homonuclear diatomics formed from atoms of the second period, these are the symmetry orbitals 1 og, 1 ou, 2ag,... [Pg.48]

super molecule (SM) should be maximal with the initial, canonical orbitals (j) of the non-interacting molecules, the bridge thus implies an overlap criterion ... [Pg.55]

Chemically speaking there is little to say. Canonical Hartree-Fock molecular orbitals leave no place for classical chemical concepts such as bonds between atoms or groups, lone pairs, resonance hybrids, etc. However, chemists still utilize these concepts because they are extremely useful in correlating and understanding chemical facts. Even when one manages to localize the canonical molecular orbitals (which is not always straightforward) in regions such that they could be associated with lone pairs or individual chemical bonds, it is important to bear in mind that the orbitals represent localized one-electron states, and not a two-electron chemical bond between atoms or a lone pair of electrons, as will be discussed further.

In the ground state, the 44 electrons are arranged in 22 double-occupied orbitals in the independent particle description. The valence electrons in thiophene are distributed in 13 MOs. All the canonical molecular orbitals (MOs) are either a-type or b-type. There is no degeneracy in these orbitals therefore, the spectra of thiophene are not complicated by the Jahn-Teller effect. [Pg.684]

Certainly one of the first conceptual problems which arises if one describes the ground state of a molecule in terms of Q-bonds is how to obtain a compatible description of the excited states and ion states which may have B, IT, or A symmetries. A discussion of how a compatible description is obtained has been given recently 11). However, since it is important for later discussions in this work, especially with respect to the connection between valence bond theory, localized molecular orbitals (LMOs) and canonical molecular orbitals (CMOs), a brief account is provided here. [Pg.203]

Thus the spectrum which arises when Eq. (8) is Fourier transformed consists of a set of -functions at the energies corresponding to the stationary states of the ion (which via the theorem of Koopmans) are the one-electron eigenvalues of the Hartree-Fock equations). The valence bond description of photoelectron spectroscopy provides a novel perspective of the origin of the canonical molecular orbitals of a molecule. Tlie CMOs are seen to arise as a linear combination of LMOs (which can be considered as imcorrelated VB pairs) and coefficients in this combination are the probability amplitudes for a hole to be found in the various LMOs of the molecule.
