We have calculated cross sections for low‐energy electron impact excitation of the first triplet state (5a_1’→3a_2") of [1.1.1] propellane. Our results support the assignment of a recently observed [O. Schafer, M. Allan, G. Szeimies, and M. Sanktjohansen, J. Am. Chem. Soc. (submitted)] near‐threshold peak as a (5a_1’)(3a_2")2 core‐excited shape resonance.
