MP2/6-31g(p,d) calculations were performed on the C-HN (or O, F) hydrogen bonding between 18 substituted X-CC-H and NH3,H2O, and HF. It was found that the Hammett-type correlation was applicable to the above systems, which indicated that the field/inductive and resonance effects could both affect the X-CC-HNH3 (or H2O, HF) hydrogen bonding.
