Abstract

"Semi-empirical molecular orbital calculations of the Extended Ruckel and MIND0/1 type have been performed on semibullvalene and the supposed transition state for its degenerate [3,3] sigmatropic rearrangement. The results have been coupled with bond energy calculations to ascertain whether semibullvalene is homo-aromatic or is undergoing a rearrangement of exceedingly low activation energy. A preponderance of the resulting data suggests that semibullvalene is homo-aromatic"--Abstract, page ii.
