Abstract: Density functional theory based global and local electrophilicity descriptors are used to study the reliability of local electrophilicity values of the strongest electrophilic sites in generating global intermolecular electrophilicity trends. The evaluated values on 15 different organic chlorides show that, for systems having more than one comparatively strong electrophilic site, the local electrophilicity value of the strongest site does not produce a reliable global intermolecular electrophilicity trend. But…
