Abstract:

An empirical principle, viz. maximum nucleophilicity principle (MNP), is proposed based on studying the change in nucleophilicity index (∆N) for some basic reactions. It is observed that NProduct > NReactant and ∆N ≥ 0 in majority of the reactions. Based on the obtained outcomes, it is revealed that ‘a chemical reaction or any species naturally directs itself towards a state of maximum nucleophilicity and stability’ and this behaviour can be known as MNP. It is believed that MNP could act as a valuable tool in predicting reactive behaviours, tendencies and stable geometries of real as well as hypothetical species.

Keywords: Chemical reactivity descriptors; Maximum hardness principle; Minimum polarizability principle; Minimum electrophilicity principle; Nucleophilicity index; Stability
