Electronic Structure of Pi Systems: Part III--Applications in Spectroscopy and Chemical Reactivity.
Fox, Marye Anne; Matsen, F. A.
Journal of Chemical Education, v62 n7 p551-60 Jul 1985
Shows that electronic structure diagrams make more accurate predictions of spectral properties and chemical reactivity for simple pi systems than do either Huckel molecular orbital or valence bond theory alone. Topics addressed include absorption and photoelectron spectra, spin density distribution in radicals, and several problems regarding chemical reactivity. (JN)
