The correct McLachlan method in free radicals and radical anions

  • Colin L. Honeybourne
Short Communications

Abstract

A recent modification to the McLachlan method is corrected. This modification, when correctly applied to odd alternant hydrocarbons, reproduces McLachlan's results instead of improving their agreement with experiment. The modification is irrelevant and erroneous for radical anions.

Key words
