The recently suggested approach to analysis of chemical reactivity in terms of the similarity index has been generalized by introduction of similarity indices of higher orders. Using an example of concrete application of the third order similarity index some specific features accompanying the process of electron reorganization in the so-called multibond reactions have been analyzed and discussed.
