TDB9e (3D topological distance based autocorrelationlag 9/weighted by Sanderson electronegativities) is positively correlated to the anticonvulsant activity, meaning that increase in its value augments the activity of the studied compounds.
In contrast, atoms of similar electronegativities that bond together through an equal sharing of electrons are known as non-polar molecules.
The values of relative electronegativities (REN) of Tl, S, and Br that were used in calculations are, respectively, 1,4; 2,6; and 2,9 [29].
GATS5e belonged to 2D autocorrelations and was Geary autocorrelation, lag 5/weighted by atomic Sanderson electronegativities. This descriptor was favorable to the antiandrogen activities of these steroidal derivatives.
It was proposed that metals with electronegativities smaller than 1.54 should form endohedral fullerenes larger than a minimum size, which depends on the radius of the trapped atom.
The Mulliken electronegativity of a semiconductor is the geometric mean of the electronegativities of the constituent atoms, and the Mulliken electronegativity of an atom is the arithmetic mean of the atomic electron affinity and the first ionization energy [21].
