Frontier orbitals
 
The filled or partly filled HOMO and completely or partly vacant LUMO of a molecular entity.  
 
Examination of the mixing of frontier molecular orbitals of reacting molecular entities affords an approach to the interpretation of reaction behaviour; this constitutes a simplified perturbation molecular orbital theory of chemical behaviour.
 
HOMO: Highest-energy Occupied Molecular Orbital
LUMO: Lowest-energy Unoccupied Molecular Orbital
SOMO: Singly Occupied Molecular Orbital
