Abstract: Using a recently developed method for computing the effect of non-bonding mo-

lecular orbitals (NBMOs) on the total p-electron energy (E), it was found that the depend-

ence of E on the number n0 of NBMOs is almost perfectly linear. We now show that this reg-

ularity remains valid for very large values of n0, in particular, to hold up to n0 = 20.

Keywords: total p-electron energy, non-bonding molecular orbitals, chemical graph theory.

INTRODUCTION

This paper is concerned with the total p-electron energy of conjugated molecules, as

computed within the simple, tight-binding Hckel molecular-orbital model.1,2 This quan-

tity, expressed as usual in the units of the resonance integral b will be denoted by E. The

dependence of E on molecular structure has been examined in numerous studies, over a

period longer than half a century; for details and additional references see the books,1,3,4

the reviews,5,6 and elsewhere.710 Already in the 1970s the question of how E is influ-

enced by the presence of non-bonding molecular orbitals (NBMOs) was posed. On the ba-

sis of numerical examples,11 one could immediately conclude that NBMOs diminish the

value of E. The analytical expression proposed for this dependence1,12

E a 2 m (n - n0 ) (1)

where m and n are the number of vertices and edges of the molecular graph,1,3 and a 0.92

such a long time was needed to discover the inadequacy of formula (1) lies in the fact that it

was not known how to separate the effect on NMBOs on E from the effects of other struc-

tural features of the underlying conjugated p-electron system (such as cycles, Kekul

structures, branching of the carbon-atom skeleton, etc.). Only quite recently,8 a method

was put forward by means of which the effect of NBMOs could be directly evaluated. In

Ref. 8 the effect of two NBMOs (n0 = 2) was studied. In a further study9 the method was

extended so as to be applicable to greater values of n0. However, the size of the molecular

graphs needed for these studies rapidly increases with increasing n0: in order to be able to

go up to n0 = 7 one had to perform calculations on graphs with 181 vertices.9 The results

obtained in these studies9 were surprising and by no means anticipated by theory: an al-

most perfect linear correlation exists between E and n0.

The aim of the present work is to check if such a linear relation is valid for conjugated

p-electron species possessing much more than a few NBMOs. The main conclusion is that

the E/n0-correlation shows no deviation from linearity even in the case of very large values

of n0. In particular, this linearity was checked until n0 = 20.

THE METHOD

In order to quantitatively determine the effect of NBMOs on E we have recently de-

veloped a pertinent method.8,9 The method employs molecular graphs denoted by PN (j1,

j2, , jk), depicted in Fig. 1. This graph is obtained from the N-vertex path PN, by attaching

to it k pendent vertices (denoted by x1, x2, xk) at positions j1, j2, , jk. By ai is denoted

the number of vertices of PN (j1, j2, , jk), lying between the vertices ji and ji+1, i = 1, 2, ,

k 1. In addition a0 and ak are the number of vertices lying left from j1 and right from jk, re-

spectively; see Fig. 1.

Fig. 1. The molecular graph PN(j1, j2, , jk) studied in this work. According to the notation indicated, PN(j1,

j2, , jk) has N + k vertices, where N = a0 + a1 + a2 + + ak + k. For additional details see text.

Among the numbers a0, a1, a2, , ak some are even (i.e., ai = 0, 2, 4, 6, ) and some are

odd (i.e., ai = 1, 3, 5, 7, ) Let w (a0, a1, a2, , ak) among them be odd. It was shown,9 that

n0 (PN (j1, j2, , jk)) = w(a0, a1, a2, ak)

If the vertex xi in PN(j1, j2, , jk) is shifted by one (either to the left or to the right),

then the parity of the numbers ai1 and ai is changed and, consequently, the value of n0 ei-

ther increases by two or decreases by two or remains the same. By pertinently shifting sev-

eral of the vertices x1, x2, , xk, the number of NBMOs can vary from 0 to k + 1 (if both N

and k are odd) or from 1 to k (if N is even and k is odd) or from 1 to k + 1 (if N is odd and k is

even) or from 0 to k (if both N and k are even). If, in addition, the branching points j1, j2, ,

jk are positioned sufficiently far from each other, and sufficiently far from the terminal ver-

tices of the path PN, then the respective energy-differences result almost completely from

TOTAL p-ELECTRON ENERGY 779

the variations of n0. By detailed numerical testing,8,9 it was found that the total p-electron

energies of two different systems represented by graphs of the form PN(j1, j2, , jk) and

having an equal number of NBMOs differ by less than 0.005 b provided ai > 20 for all i =

0, 1, , k. Thus, the branching points j1, j2, , jk can be viewed as being sufficiently far

from each other if the condition ai > 20 is obeyed for all i. In our calculations, in order to be

on the safe side, slightly greater values for ai, namely ai = 22, 23, 24 or ai = 25 were chosen,

see Tables I and II.

With this choice, different molecular graphs of the type PN(j1, j2, , jk) have a fixed

number of vertices (= N + k) and edges (= N + k 1), possess no cycles, have the same

branching pattern with the branching points being sufficiently distant from each other and

from the terminal vertices of the N-vertex chain. Consequently, in the differences of the

E-values of such molecular graphs, all (known) effects influencing the total p-electron en-

ergy, except the effect of NBMOs, will cancel out.

NUMERICAL WORK

From the results outlined in the preceding section, it follows that if one wants to compute

the energy-effects of a larger number of NBMOs, one must deal with graphs of the type PN(j1,

j2, , jk) with large values of the parameter k and, therefore, with enormously large number of

vertices. In order to be able to reach n0 = 20, one must choose k = 19, which requires N = 499

and N = 500. In other words, it is necessary to compute the eigenvalues and energies of molec-

ular graphs with n = 518 and n = 519 vertices. (Recall that the usually studied molecular graphs

hardly ever possess more than 50 vertices. The molecular graphs of the largest conjugated sys-

tems ever synthesized have around 200 vertices.13)

Fig. 2. Correlation between the total p-electron energy (E) and the number of non-bonding molecular

orbitals (n0) for the systems PN(j1, j2, , jk) specified in Tables I and II. The respective regression lines are

given by Eqs. (2) and (3).

The species considered in this work, together with their n0- and E-values, are given in

Tables I and II. The plot of E vs. n0 is shown in Fig. 2.

TABLE I. The species PN(j1, j2, , jk) considered, with k = 19 and N = 499 (cf. Fig. 1); n0 is the number of

NBMOs and E the total p-elektron energy. Note that the E-values of systems having equal numbers of

NBMOs differ insignificantly

TOTAL p-ELECTRON ENERGY 781

From the data given in Tables I and II, it can be seen that the E-values pertaining to the

molecular graphs PN(j1, j2, , jk) with equal n0 are practically equal, differing as re-

quired by less than 0.005b. This detail confirms that n0 is the chief parameter responsible

for the differences in the E-values.

Figure 2 shows that the correlation between E and n0 is linear, of very good quality.

By least-squares fitting, for the 21 data points with N = 499:

E = (0.0550 0.0001)n0 + (654.500 0.001); n0 = 0, 2, 4, , 20 (2)

and for the 20 data points with N = 500

E = (0.0549 0.0001)n0 + (655.771 0.001); n0 = 1, 3, 5, , 19 (3)

The respective correlation coefficients are R = 0.99997 and R = 0.99998.

As seen, the slopes of the two regression lines are (within the limits of statistical un-

certainty) identical. No curvilinearity in the examined regressions could be detected.

Fig. 3. Same data as in Fig. 2, after diminishing the E-values for odd n0 by 1.271 b. The regression line thus

obtained is (0.05497 0.00007)n0 + (654.5005 0.0008), with the correlation coefficient R = 0.99997.

The regression line (3) lies by 1.271 b-units above the line (2). This is the (expected)

consequence of the fact that the molecular graphs pertaining to N = 500 have one vertex

more than those pertaining to N = 499. Thanks to the identity of the slopes of (2) and (3),

the two data sets could be combined by subtracting 1.271 from the E-values with odd n0.

This results in the line shown in Fig. 3.

CONCLUDING REMERKS

A previously elaborated model9 was extended here to very large values of n0, making

it possible to formulate the following rule: Provided other effects are kept constant, the ef-

fect of non-bonding molecular orbitals on the total p-electron energy is linearly propor-

782 GUTMAN et al.

tional to the number of NBMOs. This surprisingly simple regularity was by no means an-

ticipated in previous theoretical considerations. We established it by means of computer

experiments, and at the present moment cannot offer any theoretical rationalization for

it. This latter task remains a challenge for the future.
