stereoelectronic control
Control of the nature of the products of a chemical reaction (or of its rate) by @S05977@ factors. The term is usually applied in the framework of an orbital approximation. The variations of @M03996@ energies with relative nuclear geometry (along a @R05168@) are then seen as consequences of variations in basis-orbital overlaps.
