Electronegativity is a fundamental concept in chemistry that allows one to infer important aspects about the interactions between chemical species. In the present work we make use of the framework provided by the density functional theory of chemical reactivity, to discuss in a unified way the approaches to the concept of electronegativity developed by Pauling and by Mulliken. Our analysis starts by making use of the identification of the electronegativity of Mulliken with the chemical… 
Thermochemical electronegativities of the elements
TLDR
This work identifies drawbacks in the definition of Pauling's electronegativity scale—and, correcting them, arrives at the thermochemical scale, where electronegativities are dimensionless numbers.
Experimental and theoretical investigations (FTIR, UV-VIS spectroscopy, HOMO-LUMO, NLO and MEP analysis) of aminothiophenol isomers
ABSTRACT. In this research, theoretical and experimental investigation was performed on the structural and spectral data of aminothiophenol isomers. The theoretical electronic structure analyses were
DFT Investigation of Hydrogen Atom Abstraction from NHC-Boranes by Methyl, Ethyl and Cyanomethyl Radicals—Composition and Correlation Analysis of Kinetic Barriers
TLDR
A three-variable linear model was used to describe the dependence of the activation and free energy barriers on the thermodynamic reaction energy or reaction Gibbs free energy, which was demonstrated to be more precise than the two-variable Evans–Polanyi linear free energy model and more succinct than the three- variable Marcus-theory-based nonlinear HAA model.
DFT investigation of hydrogen atom-abstraction reactions of NHC-boranes by various carbon-centered radicals: barriers and correlation analyses
In this study, we employed a quantum-mechanical computational method to investigate the hydrogen-atom abstraction reactions of two nitrogen heterocyclic carbene boranes (NHC-boranes), NHC-BH3 and
Can the Philicity of Radicals Be Influenced by Oriented External Electric Fields?
TLDR
The effects of an electric field on radicals are investigated for a set of model radicals with varying complexity to determine the intrinsic philicity of a radical, as quantified by the global electrophilicity index, ω.

Precision is given to the concept of electronegativity. It is the negative of the chemical potential (the Lagrange multiplier for the normalization constraint) in the Hohenberg–Kohn density

It was recently shown that the size consistency of the energy implies that, for any system with a rational number of electrons, the energy is given by the weighted average of the two systems with the
Electronegativity—a perspective
TLDR
It is shown that a formulation of atomic electronegativity that does prove to be effective is to express it as the average local ionization energy on an outer contour of the atom’s electronic density, but this approach leads to some results that are not chemically valid.
A new scale of electronegativity based on electrophilicity index.
TLDR
It is shown that the new scale successfully obeys Sanderson's electrOnegativity equalization principle and for those molecules which have the same number of atoms, the ratio of the change in electronegativity during the formation of a molecule from its elements to the molecular electr onegativity (Delta chi/chi omega) is the same.
An electronic temperature definition for the reactive electronic species: Conciliating practical approaches in conceptual chemical reactivity theory with a rigorous ensemble formulation.
TLDR
It is shown that the exact Helmholtz potential dependence with respect to the number of electrons can accurately be approximated by "temperature dependent" polynomial fits (up to fourth order), evaluated at the electronic temperature condition.
Electronegativity Seen as the Ground-State Average Valence Electron Binding Energy.
TLDR
A new electronegativity scale for atoms, based consistently on ground-state energies of valence electrons, is introduced, closely related to (yet different from) L. C. Allen's, which is based on configuration energies.

The recent concepts of absolute electronegativity, {chi}, and absolute hardness, {eta}, are briefly reviewed. Experimental values for a large number of molecules and radicals are presented. The
Perturbative perspectives on the chemical reaction prediction problem
When a molecule is in the presence of a chemical reagent, the external potential and the number of electrons in the molecule change. This leads to perturbative perspectives on chemical reactivity,

TLDR
The mathematical analysis indicates that the widely used parabolic interpolation model should not be viewed as an approximation for the average electronic energy, but for the dependence of the Helmholtz free energy upon the number of electrons, and this analysis is corroborated by numerical results.
