Abstract: The valence ionization bands of benzene and of polyacenes ranging from naphthalene to pentacene have been entirely assigned by means of one-particle Green's function calculations, performed using the third-order algebraic-diagrammatic construction [ADC(3)] scheme and series of basis sets of improving quality. For the sake of consistency, the computations are based on correlated (DFT/B3LYP) rather than uncorrelated geometries. Ionization bands pertaining to pi -orbitals are subject to a severe shake-up contamination at already quite low binding energies (e.g., down to 8.0 eV in the case of pentacene). In sharp contrast, the orbital picture of ionization holds to a much greater extent within the sigma -band system (e.g., for pentacene, up to binding energies of 14.6 eV). Despite the intricacy of ionization bands, and, possibly, vibrational complications, ADC(3) spectra consistently match photoionization measurements up to the inner-valence region, where the orbital picture completely breaks down.
