     Unitary theory (Chem.), the modern theory that the
        molecules of all complete compounds are units, whose parts
        are bound together in definite structure, with mutual and
        reciprocal influence on each other, and are not mere
        aggregations of more or less complex groups; --
        distinguished from the dualistic theory.
        [1913 Webster]
