  1. Transferability

    Transferability, in chemistry, is the assumption that a chemical property that is associated with an atom or a functional group in a molecule will have a similar value in a variety of different circumstances. Examples of transferable properties include: ⁕Electronegativity ⁕Nucleophilicity ⁕Chemical shifts in NMR spectroscopy ⁕Characteristic frequencies in Infrared spectroscopy ⁕bond length and bond angle ⁕bond energy Transferable properties are distinguished from conserved properties, which are assumed to always have the same value whatever the chemical situation, e.g. relative atomic mass.
