### Abstract

By an appropriate rotational procedure, a projection operator can be constructed to give exact eigenfunctions of angular momentum. Applications to cases involving spin and orbital angular momentum are given and, in particular, all spin multiplets of the alternant molecular structure are obtained. The connection with the group theoretical approach is discussed.
