Abstract

A correlation between the Wiener index (W) and the molecular surface of the respective alkane is established for the first time. This correlation is curvilinear and not particularly good. W is only weakly correlated to molecular volume of saturated hydrocarbons and does not reflect at all their surface-to-volume ratio. By this a long-existing controversy concerning the physico-chemical interpretation of W is resolved.
