To address this topic and further investigate all the reaction pathways that blocked isocyanates could be subjected to (Figure 4, (8)), in addition to simple thermal deblocking, the impact of catalysts, chain extenders with different nucleophilicity (e.g., polyols and amines) or their combination were investigated.
The accelerated aging occurs because the reactivity of the amine depends upon the nucleophilicity of the amino group [7].
They address electronic structure principles, such as the electronegativity equalization principle, harness equalization principle, electrophilicity equalization principle, nucleophilicity equalization principle, and studies based on these electronic structure principles.

The maximum values of relative nucleophilicity index ([s.sup.+.sub.k]/[s.sup.-.sub.k]) and relative electrophilicity index ([s.sup.-.sub.k]/[s.sup.+.sub.k]) are used to define, respectively, the probable sites of nucleophilic and electrophilic attacks.

In MEP analysis, electrophilicity and nucleophilicity is explained on the basis of different color codes, red color indicates nucleophilic and blue color reflects electrophilic site [43].
The global reactivity indices (electronic chemical potential [mu], chemical hardness [eta], global electrophilicity [omega], global nucleophilicity N) were estimated according to the equations recommended by Parr [15, 16] and Domingo [17, 18].
The thermal stability of ionic liquids is influenced by anion nucleophilicity. For imidazolium salts with a [Cl.sup.-] anion, the first step of decomposition is reported to occur between 250 and 300 [degrees]C (Fig.
