The empirical parameters of copolymerization Q-e have been examined as an endpoint for establishing the quantitative structure – property relationships (QSPRs). The possibility to build up QSPR for these parameters is demonstrated for 22 transfer chain agents. Data for 20 taken in the literature and two were investigated in direct experiment. The statistical qualities of the models for parameter e together with the negative decimal logarithm of Q × 10−4 (pQ) are quite good. The mechanistic interpretation for these models are suggested and discussed.
