abstract = {Substituent shifts of the energetics of four related ionization processes of pyridines and benzoic acids (Fig. I) were investigated. The first process is core-electron ionization of gas-phase pyridines (Fig. 1A), while the second concerns gas-phase acid-base reaction between a substituted pyridine and a Conjugated acid (Fig. 1B), and the third and fourth processes are the acid dissociation of substituted benzoic acids in aqueous solution (Fig. 1C and in vacuum (Fig. 1D), respectively. Core-electron binding energies for the first process Were Calculated using density-functional theory with the scheme Delta E-KS (PW86x-PW91c/TZP+C-ret)//HF/6-31G*. Average absolute deviation of calculated core electron binding energy shifts at N atom in Substituted pyridines from experiment was 0.08 eV. The shift at N coincides highly with that at a ring carbon atom. The four shifts corresponding to the four processes shown in Figs. 1A-D correlate strongly with one another. with numerical values fairly close to each other when expressed in unit of electron volts.

abstract = {According to Lindberg et al. there exists an equation Delta CEBE=kappa sigma for substituted benzene derivatives. Core-electron binding energy shift (Delta CEBE) is the difference between the CEBE of a specific carbon in monosubstituted benzene derivatives (C6H5-Z) and in benzene (C6H5-H); K is related to a reaction constant and or is the experimental Hammett substituent constant. The object of the present work is to investigate geometry, solvent, and polar effects on Lindberg{\textquoteright}s equation using theoretically calculated ACEBE. The CEBEs were calculated using DFT within the scheme Delta E-KS (PW86x-PW91c/TZP + C-rel). The geometry has only little effect on the CEBE values. A regression relation between ACEBE and 0, takes the form Delta CEBE = kappa sigma-C with K congruent to 1.17 and C congruent to 0.17. We estimated 69 sigma constants in water that have not been presented in the literature. Theoretical resonance (sigma(R)) and inductive (sigma(I)) effects were calculated using Taft equations. ACEBE (R) and ACEBE (1) effects on ACEBE were also calculated using Taft-like equations. The quality of the correlation to the resonance is better than that to the inductive effect, in water. The regression quality in aqueous organic solvent is poorer than in water in both Lindberg and Taft equations. The solvent effect is greater on the resonance than on the inductive effect.
