Chemical resonance is legitimate and universal

    "Chemical resonance is legitimate and universal"

    We all know that Lignus Pauling was the creator of both concepts:

    Hybridization and resonance. VB theory centered its strength over MO theory in the fact that they were able to better explain the chemistry of carbon [organic].

    Today hybridization is loosing part of its original steam since although it was useful in the beginings, it doesn't work always right. Resonance, however weird and hardly demostratable, still constitutes the only viable way to explain [correctly] the bonds in the ring [Kekule's rings] and similar compounds.

    I found an alternative approach to the same subject. It's not a conventional one and its not an officially accepted one either.

    However I'd like to hear what members of this forum would have to say about it.

    In short, there is a theory that not only base its arguments in the fact that ALL molecules resonate, but also legitimize resonance as universal.

    The name of the theory is "Bonding Harmonics" and this is the web addresss to it:

    Any opinions?
