A series of 21 benzhydrylium ions (diarylmethylium ions) are proposed as reference electrofuges for the development of a general nucleofugality scale, where nucleofugality refers to a combination of leaving group and solvent. A total of 167 solvolysis rate constants of benzhydrylium tosylates, bromides, chlorides, trifluoroacetates, 3,5-dinitrobenzoates, and 4-nitrobenzoates, two-thirds of which have been determined during this work, were subjected to a least-squares fit according to the correlation equation log k(25 degrees C) = sf(Nf + Ef), where sf and Nf are nucleofuge-specific parameters and Ef is an electrofuge-specific parameter. Although nucleofuges and electrofuges characterized in this way cover more than 12 orders of magnitude, a single set of the parameters, namely sf, Nf, and Ef, is sufficient to calculate the solvolysis rate constants at 25 degrees C with an accuracy of +/-16 %. Because sf approximately 1 for all nucleofuges, that is, leaving group/solvent combinations, studied so far, qualitative discussions of nucleofugality can be based on Nf.
