Bunnett-Olsen equations The equations for the relation between lg([SH+]/[S]) + Ho and Ho + lg[H+] for base S in aqueous mineral acid solution, where Ho is Hammett’s acidity function and Ho + lg[H+] represents the activity function lg(γS γH+)/γSH+ for the nitroaniline reference bases to build Ho. lg([SH+]/[S])–lg[H+] = (Φ–1)(Ho + lg[H+]) + pKSH+ lg([SH+]/[S]) + Ho = Φ (Ho + lg[H+]) + pKSH+ See also COX-YATES EQUATION.
