Perturbation theory for excited states of molecules. III

  • B. L. Burrows


The configuration interaction perturbation theory and the single configuration perturbation theory developed in Paper I is applied to the problem of chemical reactivity for conjugated hydrocarbon molecules. Various related hetromolecules are also considered. It is found that the pattern of reactivity for excited states is much the same as for the ground state.
