In this paper the reactivity of radical -- molecular addition reaction is studied interms of AM1 semi- empirical method and the Lewis acid- base theory. The results suggest thatthe reactivity of such reactions is determined mainly by the perturbation energy between the tworeactants while the electrostatic energy between charges has only a small effect on it. In addition,it is found that there is a strong interaction between the two reaction center atoms.

Key words: Addition reaction, Activation energy, AMl, Lewis acid-base theory
