Three-center two-electron bond index profiles of some simple molecules containing H, Li and B atoms have been calculated using suitable basis sets at the HF level. These profiles correspond to the formation of H 3 + from H 2 and H +, rotation of the BH 2 units of B 2 H 6 and variation of the HLiH angle of LiH 3. The three-center bond index is found to be maximum near to the geometry of energy minimum. Higher three-center bond indices are observed for LiH dimer and B 4 + at their equilibrium geometry than at an alternative structure.
