Abstract

Abstract We show in this paper that the enthalpy changes and, eventually, the rate constants of any physical or chemical process involving carbocations and (or) carbanions can be rationalized in terms of the stabilization energies of these species. The ionization and heterolytic bond dissociation processes and also the ionic additions to alkenes have been particularly studied in this work. In this context, a series of interesting relations between thermodynamic or kinetic parameters and stabilization energies have been derived.
