The nature of the chemical bond in 1,3-butadiene is analyzed by applying the recently developed generalized product function energy partitioning (GPF-EP) scheme, which allows the calculation of the quantum mechanical interference contribution to the energy in a meaningful and intuitive fashion. The method is applied to investigate the breakage of the middle… CONTINUE READING
