[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The NM-gamma CNDO/S program previously developed by our group was modified by the introduction of a new one-center electron repulsion integral gamma(AA)(new) approximation, namely, the gamma(AA)(new)-CNDO/S method. The value of this gamma(AA)(new) was evaluated according to the product values of the coefficient C with the gamma(AA) value proposed in our previous paper. This method using a new gamma(AA) was also found to improve the two-center electron repulsion integral gamma(AB) value with respect to the chemical softness proposed by Nishimoto and co-workers, together with the difference between HOMO and LUMO orbital energies. The results calculated by the present improved gamma(AA)(new)-CNDO/S method demonstrated that not only the calculated absorption maxima wavelengths and ionization potentials, but also the order and the assignment of orbitals coincided very well with those based on the results of experiments investigating a variety of polyenes, cyanynes, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.
