Abstract:


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&apos;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.

Keywords:

Bratsch equation, chemical hardness, conceptual density functional theory, electronegativity, group electronegativity, sanderson&apos;s electronegativity equalization principle.
