An empirical principle, viz. maximum nucleophilicity principle (MNP), is proposed based on studying the change in nucleophilicity index (�N) for some basic reactions. It is observed that N Product > N Reactant and �N � 0 in majority of the reactions. Based on the obtained outcomes, it is revealed that �a chemical reaction or any species naturally directs itself towards a state of maximum nucleophilicity and stability� and this behaviour can be known as MNP. It is believed that MNP could act as a valuable tool in predicting reactive behaviours, tendencies and stable geometries of real as well as hypothetical species. © 2023, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to the Institute of Chemistry, Slovak Academy of Sciences.
