In this work, the Fukui function will be analyzed using the framework of the topological analysis. First, the Fukui function will be introduced as part of the Density Functional Theory of Chemical Reactivity, and its chemical interpretation will be discussed. Then, some applications showing the importance of the topological analysis will be presented. The applications cover from acids and basis of Lewis, substituted benzenes and as an orientation predictor for the most favorable interaction between clusters (used as building blocks) to form larger structures.
