Is it impossible to use the Localized Electron Model to predict whether a given molecule is para/diamagnetic? Since the LE model only allows for the prediction of where specific electron pairs are located, e.g. between which orbitals and belonging to which atoms in the molecule, and thus is impotent in predicting which specific orbitals are filled by the present electrons. Also since LE doesn't consider MOs, it seems prediction of a molecule's magnetism is impossible? Is my reasoning correct? Also, my chem. text simply states that paramagnetism is associated with unpaired electrons in an orbital. So does this mean that all free radicals are paramagnetic?
