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.

abstract = {A total of 59 core-electron binding energies (CEBEs) were studied with the Amsterdam Density Functional Program (ADF) program and compared with the observed values. The results indicate that a polarized triple-zeta basis set of Slater-type orbitals is adequate for routine assessment of the performance of each method of computation. With such a basis set, seven density functionals were tested. In addition, the performance of 21 energy density functionals were computed from the density calculated with the statistical average of orbital potentials (SAOP). Among all the choices tested, the best density functional for core-electron binding energies of C to F turns out to be the combination of Perdew-Wang (1986) functional for exchange and the Perdew-Wang (1991) functional for correlation, confirming earlier studies based on contracted Gaussian-type orbitals. For this best functional, five Slater-type orbital basis sets were examined, ranging from polarized double-zeta quality to the largest set available in the ADF package. For the best functional with the best basis set, the average absolute deviation (AAD) of the calculated value from experiment is only 0.16 eV (C) 2003 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.},
