We introduce a model combining a density functional based tight-binding method with a configuration interaction like scheme to treat charge delocalization in ionized molecular clusters. As an application, we determine the size-evolution of some properties of stack coronene clusters, namely charge delocalization, binding energies and ionization potentials.
