Relative energy of organic compounds V. structure-energy comparisons

  • Árpád FurkaEmail author
Original Research


The structure-dependent energies of organic compounds reflect the energies arising from all of their different structural elements. The value of the contribution of an element, for example a double bond differs from C=C, to C=O or C=S. In this article, the energies of structural elements occurring in different classes of compounds are compared.
