#chempaperaday Day 23/365: “What are the Electrons Really Doing in Molecules?”

Today I read this article (free) about R.S.Mulliken that was written by a UMASS lecturer. Mulliken was an American chemist and a physicist. 

He is very well known for his work and development of Molecular Orbital Theory. Anybody who has taken a course on Symmetry and Group Theory will also remember his name from Mulliken Symbols (A, B, E, T). 

For his work on molecular orbital theory in particular he was awarded a Nobel Prize in Chemistry

I know today's paper is not one of those journal papers, but hey that's what I read and it IS about chemistry. So, I guess it counts.
