We present modified a""-states of diatomic molecules by solving the radial and angle-dependent parts of the Schrodinger equation for central potentials, such as Morse and Kratzer, plus an exactly solvable angle-dependent potential V (theta) (theta)/r (2) within the framework of the Nikiforov-Uvarov (NU) method. We emphasize that the contribution which comes from the solution of the Schrodinger equation for the angle-dependent potential modifies the usual angular momentum quantum number a"". We calculate explicitly bound state energies of a number of neutral diatomic molecules composed of a first-row transition metal and main-group elements for both Morse and Kratzer potentials plus an angle-dependent potential. We also compare the bound state energies for both potentials, taking into account spectroscopic parameters of diatomic molecules and arbitrary values of potential constants.
