Abstract  Lipophilicity (expressed as log P, the logarithm of partition coefficients) is known to be decomposable into a cavity/volume term V expressing mainly hydrophobic and dispersive solutesolvent interactions, and polar terms reflecting electrostatic solutesolvent interactions, e.g. log P = aV + bpi* + calpha + dbeta, where pi*, alpha, and beta are solvatochromic parameters, i.e., the dipolarity/polarizability, Hbond donor acidity, and Hbond acceptor basicity, respectively. Here, we define a parameter LAMBDA such that LAMBDA = bpi* + calpha + dbeta and show that LAMBDA(oct) (i.e., LAMBDA calculated from 1octanol/water log P values) is correlated mainly with beta (r2 = 0.867; n = 168), while LAMBDA(alk) (i.e., LAMBDAcalculated from alkane/water log P values) is correlated mainly with alpha and beta (r2 = 0.897; n = 104). Thus, and within the explored range of values, a fair estimate of the Hbond donor acidity and acceptor basicity of solutes can be obtained from their log P(oct) and log P(alk) values and calculated molecular volumes
