“The new definition is the average binding energy of the outermost and weakest bound electrons. The scale is extensive, and I hope it will greatly affect research in chemistry and material science. Electronegativity is routinely used in chemical research and with our new scale a number of complicated quantum mechanical calculations can be avoided.”
