The simple, single configuration, molecular orbital diagram was used to qualitatively predict the observed trends in the values of μ/r0 for early transition metal oxides and sulfides. The trends in μ/r0 in going across the Group 3 to Group 5 monoxides were explained without invoking a significant np metal centered atomic orbital contribution.
