The potential role of “H–vinyl” conical intersections in a photochemical process known as the hula twist has been evaluated. The H–vinyl conical intersections of butadiene are explored with complete active space self-consistent field calculations, and proposals about the geometries involved in the hula-twist mechanism are discussed and contrasted with the conventional one-bond flip mechanism of cis–trans isomerization.
