Molecular Orbital Theory is another theory to explain chemical bonding using orbitals. It was developed about the same time Valence Bond Theory was developed, primarily by Mulliken and Hund. (Mulliken was mentioned earlier because he proposed a definition of electronegativity, and Hund because of Hund's Rule.) It is a little harder to learn than Valence Bond Theory, but very useful.
