Evolution: Different paths to the same end

Abstract

the lowest-energy molecular orbital that lacks electrons (known as the lowest unoccupied molecular orbital, or LUMO) in the starting material is only slightly higher in energy than that of the highest electron-filled orbital (the highest occupied molecular orbital, or HOMO). This is why the LUMO readily accepts electrons donated from hydrogen molecules. In… (More)
