Croatica Chemica Acta, Vol.64 No.3 December 1991. -

Pauling’s resonating valence-bond concepts are selectively reviewed and illustratively utilized to describe the ground and low-lying homopolar states of polyenes. Our computations are found to support a simple picture dominated by just a few resonance structures and are in agreement with qualitative experimental observations.
