A Study of the Aromaticity of the Coumarin System Via Molecular Orbital Calculations
MetadataShow full item record
It is the purpose of this paper to attempt to predict the amount of aromaticity in coumarin and related heterocyclic molecules. More specifically, the paper will be an attempt to relate aromatic character to such calculated quantities as bond orders, electron densities and energy levels. These quantities can all be calculated via simple molecular orbital theory.
