Abstract

The graph spectral theory of conjugated molecules is presented.
It is shown that the number of bonding, non-bonding, and
antibonding Ruckel molecular orbitals may be obtained directly
from the topological features of a conjugated molecule. Similarly,
it is also shown that the total Ruckel n-electron energy and the
:n:-resonance energy may be approximated rather accurately by the
corresponding topological expressions. The estimation of the n-electron
energy of infinite conjugated systems is also given. A graphical
classification of conjugated hydrocarbons is proposed and the
restricted extension of the Coulson-Rushbrooke pairing theorem
to certain heteroconjugated molecules is discussed.
