The Evaluation of Strain and Stabilization in Molecules Using Isodesmic Reactions.
Fuchs, Richard
Journal of Chemical Education, v61 n2 p133-36 Feb 1984
Isodesmic reactions are hypothetical chemical changes in which the number of bonds of a given type are retained but change in relation to one another. Discusses use of these reactions and reaction energy to measure deviations from additivity of bond energy. Also considers relationship of enthalpies to strain and resonance stability. (JM)
