Abstract: Toluene-phase reaction equilibria between a set of o-substituted benzoic acids and crystal violet carbinol base producing a coloured ion-pair have been studied spectrophoto-metrically at 28±1ºC. Chemometric analysis on the basis of both Charton’s and Fujita-Nishioka’s multiparameter approaches for o-substituent effects on the equilibrium constants show that proximity electronic effect of an o-substituent is the main intrinsic contribution to the anomalous ortho effect with its steric factor contributing merely a minor effect. However, in the aqueous phase the steric contribution becomes significant due to hydration induced substantial enhancement in the bulk of the COOH group and the o-substituent.
