The Measurement and Meaning of Intrinsic Radical Stability: Are Chemical Questions just Problems in Applied Mathematics?

Coote, Michelle; Dickerson, Adam B.


Some of the reasons for thinking that Eyring thesis is wrong, and that chemical questions are not just 'problems in applied mathematics' are discussed. Eyring thesis, this does not entail that the concept of intrinsic stability is 'arbitrary', 'subjective' or 'ad hoc', for it can still be defined in a way that makes the concept a very useful tool for understanding and predicting molecular behavior. The concept of intrinsic radical stability is a counter-example to the Eyring thesis and the...[Show more]
