Crystal orbital calculations on cis- and trans-polyacethylene chains indicate two kinds of geometry changes on charge transfer. (1) increase (decrease) of the CC bond lenght and CCC bond angles in the trans conformer taking up (losing) electrons, and (u) ̇ a tendency towards bond-length equalization on electron uptake and loss for both conformers.
