In connection with two electron binding energy of each bond of saturated hydrocarbons, C-C bond fission and hydrogen abstraction from C-H bond are discussed by means of two center Huckel method. A beautiful correlation could be noticed between the observed bond dissociation energy and the calculated bond energy except for n-butane. Bond dissociation energies between C-C bond were also related to C-C bond fission. We could also find a very close relation between the relative easiness of hydrogen abstraction and the calculated binding energy of C-H bond. In other words, C-H bonds of tertiary hydrogen have been noticed as most weakely bonded and hence the tertiary hydrogen would most easily from the paraffins. In addition, the C-H binding energy is discussed applying ionic character of C-H bond which is derived from its dipole moment (0.4D)
