By the fact of finding 43 relationships, we have shown that the reduction potentials, dimerization potentials and potentials in half-equivalent point on titration of aryldiazonium cations XC6

Sixty six linear correlations of frequencies (ν) characterizing a collection of bonds stretching vibrations of the C-N+

salts with different anions in vaseline oil, N,N-dimethylformamide, acetone, ethylacetate, methanol, water, with the bonds orders of N≡N and C-N, with the charges on carbon atoms in para positions of the C6
X molecules aromatic rings, with the mesomeric dipole moments (μm
) of X substituents have been found. Twelve quantitative relationships combining the μm
and ν quantities with the A values have been established. The interrelations obtained have an explicitly expressed physical meaning, are featured by rather high correlation coefficients and have a predictive power in respect to redox properties, electron affinities, vibrational frequencies of aryldiazonia, as well as to mesomeric dipole moments of atomic groups in organic molecules.
