Abstract: The use of density functional theory-based reactivity descriptors, including global ( hardness, electronegativity) and local (Fukui function, local softness) indices in rationalizing the reactivity and regioselectivity of radical addition reactions has been critically analyzed. We demonstrate that there is a severe inherent deficiency in the current way of de. ning the Fukui functions and local softness for radical attack parameters (f(0) and s(0)), and propose a (preliminary) alternative.
