We have carried out calculations of energetic, structural and electronic properties for 1,5-electrocyclizations of conjugated azides at the B3LYP/6-31+G(d) level of theory. Analyses of the second-order perturbative energy lowering for interaction between donor and acceptor natural bond orbitals at the RHF/6-31+G(d) level of theory have revealed conjugated group dependent pericyclic and pseudopericyclic nature of the reactions.
