Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Solvolysis reactions involve the solvent also as a reactant. One technique in their study involves correlation analysis using linear free energy relationships. Grunwald and Winstein developed a scale of solvent ionizing power for unimolecular solvolyses and subsequently a second term, involving nucleophilicity, was added for bimolecular reactions. Originally applied to reactions at a saturated carbon, the approach can also be applied to solvolyses at acyl carbon and at heteroatoms, such as sulfur or phosphorus (Kevill, D.N.; D’Souza, M. J.  Sixty years of the Grunwald-Winstein equation: development and recent applications. J. Chem. Res., 2008, 61-66.).

If the interest is more on the nature of the interactions of the substrate with the solvent, rather than reaction mechanism, since there are a number of possibly relevant solvent properties, multiparameter equations will be required. Several books dealing with this area exist. (For example, Shorter, J, Correlation Analysis of Organic Reactivity with Particular Reference to Multiple Regression; Research Studies: New York, 1982).

Contributions in any area of the application of existing correlation equations to new reactions, modification of existing equations, or development of new approaches are welcome.
