A simple model based on optical electronegativity difference has been proposed for calculating the energy gap, refractive index and electronic polarizability of different semiconductors and alkali halides. Correlation between energy gap, refractive index and electronic polarizability are given for II-VI, III-V semiconductors and alkali halides. The calculated values of electronic polarizability are in fair agreement with the values obtained from Lorentz-Lorentz relation. This work highlights the significance of interrelation between energy gap, refractive index and electronic polarizability. The estimated values are then compared with the literature values. There is fair agreement between estimated values and literature values.

    The chemical stabilities of molecules are determined by their LUMO-HOMO energy gaps. For solids the analogs of these are their energy band gaps. However, solids are poly-molecules (i.e., polymers). But, the stabilization energy of a monomer cannot be used to describe the stability of a polymer....
