Abstract: A complete gas phase ultraviolet photoelectron spectrum(UPS) and HAM/3, MNDO, EHMO, MINDO/3, INDO as well as CNDO/2 molecular orbital calculations of pipera-zine-2,5-dione molecule are present in this paper. The tetra-multiple splitting peaks of the first band of piperazine-2,5-dione UPS spectrum have been assigned as the through-bond interactive aplittings which come from the oxygen and oxygen lone pairs, nitrogen and nitrogen lone pairs, respectively. And it has also shown that HAM/3 and MNDO calculations are better methods to predict the correct order of experimental ionization energies (I_(P_v)), orbital symmetry and the splitting spacing of through-bond and through-space interaction in-this molecule. MNDO optimum geometry of the molecule results in molecular plane conjugation and the reduction of throughbond splitting spacing.
