Intersection of electronic energies of the same space symmetry for electrons in the field of two Coulomb centers in D-dimensions were analyzed. The electronic energies were shown analytically to diverge from the point of their intersection for a one electron diatomic molecule at the large D-limit. Two electrons, where their Coulombic repulsion precluded an exact symmetry were treated in the large-D limit.
