The parameters characterizing solvents, obtained by the kinetic, spectroscopic or thermodynamic methods are discussed. The comparison of parameters, obtained using different methods, shows that there is a linear dependence among some of them. It means that parameters obtained using different methods for different reaction series, reflect changes of the same micro-properties of the environment in terms of replacement of one solvent by another. A new parameter of the solvent nucleophilicity (U) is offered

parameters of solvents, electrophilicity, nucleophilicity, Simonyan’s parameter – U.
