Objective: It is known that the electronegativities of functional groups can be significantly to used predict the reaction mechanisms and to explain inductive effects of chemical compounds. </P><P> Method: Bratsch equation is one of the most important equations used to calculate the electronegativities of functional groups. </P><P> Conclusion: In the present study, some important comments and contributions related to Bratsch's group electronegativity equation are presented. In addition, it is proposed that absolute electronegativity should be considered in comparison of inductive effects of functional groups.
