Goddard III of Caltech in Pasadena, combines the computational ease of the MO theory with the conceptual clarity of the VB theory, Messmer says.
From 1981-1992, the main focus of his research was on valence bond theory and its relationship to MO theory, and during that time, he developed a general model of reactivity based on a blend of VB and MO elements.

His research focuses on electronic structure and spectra of heavy metal complexes; electronic and magnetic circular dichroism spectroscopy; and symmetry and MO theory.
