Abstract

Hammett ρ values are estimated for the two acid dissociation equilibriums eqn. 1 and 2 of pyridinium and pyridazenium ions from the Hammett plots of log KaH versus Hammett σ values. The Hammett ρ values are found to be 5.94 and 5.29 for the two equilibriums eqns. 1 and 2 respectively. The effect of extra pyridine type nitrogen (=N-) on Hammett ρ is discussed. Similarly, the average lone pair ionization potentials (IP) of pyridines and pyridazines also followed Hammett equation with Hammett ρ of 1.18 for pyridines and 0.38 for pyridazines respectively. This article is useful in an undergraduate and graduate classroom who tries to study the substituent effects and reactivity-selectivity principle.
