A group theoretical method is developed to treat the ground and excited electronic states of multielectronic polynuclear mixed-valence systems of the general form dn-...-dn-dn+1-...-dn+1 and fn-...-fn-fn+1-...-fn+1. Effects arising from electronic degeneracy, spin-orbit interactions and reduced site symmetry are explicitly taken into account. The versatility of the technique is demonstrated by applying it to a series of trimeric mixed-valence clusters.
