Title: THE VALENCE BOND AUFBAU PRINCIPLE FOR MOLECULAR EXCITED STATES
Creators: Huestis, D. L.; Goddard, W. A., III
Issue Date: 1972
Abstract: A modified Aufbau principle is presented. This principle is based on generalized valence bond orbitals (with spatial projection) rather than the traditional molecular orbits. The last (excited) orbital of the system is modeled after the series of one-electron diatomic molecules. The forms of the energy curves can then be qualitatively predicted. These ideas are illustrated for the case of the low-lying excited $^{1,3}\Sigma ^{+}$ states of $H_{2}$. Specifically included are discussions of the binding (e.g., multiple minima) and orbital character in the B $^{1}\Sigma_{u}^{+}$ and E, F $^{1}\Sigma_{g}^{+}$ states.
