Abstract


A new atomic electronegativity scale is proposed by using the essence of electronegativity definitions of Gordy and Mulliken. The new computed atomic electronegativity data is found to satisfy all the sine qua non of a reasonable scale of atomic electronegativity. The electronegativity data is used to compute some useful descriptors of chemical reactivity. Comparative studies reveal that the new approach to derive the Gordy’s scale of electronegativity is a successful venture.
