A study of coplanar methylene dimerization by complete neglect of differential overlap with configuration interaction

  • V. S. Cherkasov
  • A. F. Terpugova


Doubly degenerate configurations are incorporated to calculate the planar dimerization of methylenes; configuration interaction eliminates the singularities on the potential-energy curve, and the wave function for the lowest state in the presence of methylene interaction indicates that the reaction is allowed if the methylenes are in the3B1 state.
