Resumen

Recent advances on the use of the information content of the pair density to understand bonding and reactivity of molecular systems are presented. Two quantities are described: (1) the information content of the like-spin exchange-correlation hole, χXC, and (2) the information content of the Coulomb hole, χC, of the like-spin and the unlike-spin cases. χXC is capable of describing the electron structure of molecules on the basis of chemical grounds with astonishing accuracy and provides a clear differentiation of the localization degree of electrons, belonging to different molecular basins. Furthermore, χXC is used as a tool to get insights in the electronic reorganization occurring along a reaction coordinate. In contrast to χXC, χC is observed to concentrate in regions between atomic shells, from which information of nonclassical weak interactions can be obtained. Some relevant problems, in which the application of χXC in conjunction with χC would be of great value, are presented.
