We studied the dynamics of the entanglement for two electron atoms with initial states created from a superposition of the eigenstates of the two-electron Hamiltonian. We present numerical evidence that the pairwise entanglement for the two electrons evolves in a way that is strongly related with the time evolution of the Coulombic interaction between the two electrons.
