Recently proposed method of the so called overlap determinant is extended in thus study to free radical and photochemical reactions. In comparison with existing alternative procedures the advantage of this generalised formalisms consists not only in its simplicity but above all in its universality allowing to analyse in a unified manner all types of chemical reactions.
