We introduce generalized bond orders defined in terms of weighted Kekule valence structures. The weights were determined by the contributions of linearly independent and minimal conjugated circuits in individual Kekule valence structure. When special values for the contributions of conjugated circuits of different size are assumed, one obtains quantities that show considerable similarity to the Pauling and the Clar's bond orders. Pauling bond orders are obtained when one assumes that all conjugated circuits make equal contribution to bond orders. © 1994 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
