Commentationes

Abstract

Hybrid-based molecular orbitals are constructed for puckered cyclobutane, and used subsequently in a configurational-interaction process. The bent-bond structure, diagonal interaction and excited states of the molecule are discussed.

Key words

Cyclobutane, hybridization in ∼ Hybrids, linear combination of ∼ Saturated organic compounds,. MO treatment of ∼
