05), Niemann et al There was a significantly greater (1992) surface electronegativity during the complex task compared to the simple task in the contralateral sensori-motor cortex.
The difference in radii and electronegativity of Cerium and Aluminium was diminished by applying pressure.
The bound electrons are situated closer to the chlorine atom because of its higher electronegativity though they are not completely transferred to the chlorine atom as in sodium chloride.
Vanadium has crystal lattice, which is similar to that of molybdenum and small difference with the latter in electronegativity and atomic diameter, which stipulates formation of continuous rows of solid solutions between them [3].
Coordinating ability of the oxygen atoms of the anion produces a dependence of the anion's NQR frequencies on the electronegativity of the metal, while there is no such dependence in purely ionic salts, where the NQR frequencies vary with the radius of the cation instead.
Teflon is a polymer formed primarily of Fluorine, because of its high electronegativity it bonds with almost nothing.
Although nonionic, POE-water soluble resins exhibit a slight electronegativity due to the lone pair of electrons of oxygen present in their structure.

On the other hand, the greater electronegativity, smaller size (radius of nitrate ion is 0.
In the design of this reactive diluent, titanium was chosen as the central transition metal atom for its high electronegativity, which increases the reactivity of the allylic methylene groups, and its tetravalent character, which enables an increase in the number of reactive sites without excessive increase in the viscosity of the formulation.
