Molecular orbital calculation indicated that the potential energy of 7,8-dihydrobiopterin was at least 30 kJ/mol lower than those of other dihydrobiopterin isomers. The instability and reactivity of quinonoid dihydrobiopterin and 5,6-dihydrobiopterin in aqueous solutions were explained not only by energy values but also by orbital figures of LUMOs.
