Classical spin alignment in radical reactions is studied by the GSF-HF wave function in H3 model system. The GSF-HF wave function introduces a simple classical picture of electronic spins directly and leads to the classical Heisenberg model. The instability of various spin alignments is studied on the GSF-HF electronic energy surface. In compensation for the classical spin freedom, the GSF-HF method does not satisfy quantum mechanical spin-symmetry. The GSF-HF wave function is analyzed with a projection operator constructed by a full-CI wave function.
