A QSRR Treatment of Solvent Effects on the Decarboxylation of 6-Nitrobenzisoxazole-3-carboxylates Employing Molecular Descriptors

A quantitative structure−reactivity relationship (QSRR) study of the decarboxylation rates of 6-nitrobenzisoxazole-3-carboxylic acid (Kemp, D. S.; Paul, K. G. <i>J. Am. Chem. Soc</i>. <b>1975</b>, <i>97</i>, 7305). employing the CODESSA program correlates the effect of 24 solvents with theoretical descriptors to provide a straightforward interpretation of these solvent effects in terms of molecular parameters.
