A New Method of Estimating Atomic Charges by Electronegativity Equilibration.
Smith, Derek W.
Journal of Chemical Education, v67 n7 p559-62 Jul 1990
Presented is a modification of Bratsch's prescription so that difficult problems are obviated while simple, familiar Pauling electronegativities are retained. Discussed are the equilibration of electronegativity in molecules, group electronegativities, coordination compounds and molecules with dative bonds, ions, and correlation with core ionization energies.
