This study theoretically evaluated oxidation potentials of a wide variety of solvents, using the recently developed highly reliable solvation model, called HSM, combined with the accurate quantum chemical methods. Reasonable agreements with experimental values were observed. Analyses on the characteristics of the highest occupied molecular orbital and chemical hardness of solvents showed qualitative and quantitative correlations with oxidation potentials, respectively.
