On the origin of a low-lying forbidden transition in polyenes and related molecules

Abstract

It is demonstrated that the inclusion of double-excited configurations in semi-empirical and a priori calculations of polyenes leads to a significant alteration of the spectrum. In agreement with the recent experiment of Hudson and Kohler, a forbidden (1Ag) state appears below the strongly allowed (1Bu) state.
