The recently introduced second-order similarity index gAB was generalized by using the geminal and/or spingeminal expansion of pair densities that they are derived from. The comparison with previous related studies confirms that the generalization does increase the information content of new indices, especially in providing the information about the difference in the spin recoupling of pure singlet and triplet states of electron pairs. Analogously, as in previous studies, the approach was applied to the analysis of several selected pericyclic reactions and possible mechanistic implications arising from the increased information content are briefly discussed. © 1994 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
