Using the AM1 semiempirical quantum method the enthalpies of formation, ionization energies, electron affinities, energy differences between highest occupied and lowest unoccupied orbitals, atomic charges, bond orders, and dipole moments have been calculated for 4-, 5-, 6-, and 7-azaindoles. A correlation has been built up between the calculated physicochemical parameters and the Hammett para-substituent and inductive constants. The 1H to 7H proton transfer in 7-azaindole has been quantitatively described.
