A very simple scheme is proposed to present the SCF molecular energy exactly as a sum of one- and two-center (mono- and diatomic) energy components, accounting for the bond formation, non-bonded repulsion, promotion etc. effects on the chemical energy scale. Generalization to the correlated case is expected to be straightforward.
