Nucleophilic addition of water and of methanol to 3,6-diamino-2,4,5,7-tetrabromo-9-[2-(methoxycarbonyl) phenyl]-9H-xanthen-9-ylium, 4BrR123, yields, respectively, xanthyl, 2-(3,6-diamino-2,4,5,7-tetrabromo-9-hydroxy-9H-xanthen-9-yl) benzoate, HO4BrR123 and, xanthyl, 2-(3,6-diamino-2,4,5,7-tetrabromo-9-methoxy-9H-xanthen-9-yl) benzoate, MeO4BrR123. The novel experimental results are addressed theoretically. The Linear Free Energy Relationship, LFER, Second Order Perturbation Theory analysis of the Natural Bond Orbital, NBO, and Quantum Theory of Atoms in Molecules, QTAIM, lead to the same conclusion: the electron-withdrawing effect of bonded Br atoms in 4BrR123 enhances extremely molecular electrophilicity, as compared to 3,6-diamino-9-[2-(methoxycarbonyl) phenyl]-9H-xanthen-9-ylium, R123. The reactivity of these diaminoxanthylium cations is discussed in the context of local and global softness in extended conjugated systems.
