In a recent paper it has been proposed that the four-orbital model of Gouterman should be replaced by a new band assignment scheme for the MPc UV-visible absorption spectrum. Since this proposed assignment scheme would alter the basis for the spectral analysis of a wide range of complexes, its validity is tested against experimental evidence from other spectroscopic techniques such as magnetic circular dichroism spectroscopy.
