Abstract : A new theoretical model for superconductivity is proposed which depends on a pairing in real space (valence bonds). Pair-pair correlations establish an ordered array of such pairs and a synchronous alternation among equivalent coherent spatial arrays of valence bonds is considered as the origin of superconductivity. Simple metals with tow valence electrons (e.g., Be, Zn, etc.) are used to illustrate the ideas. The new high Tc materials (based on substitutions in La2CuO4) will be considered elsewhere.
