Quantitative structure-property relationships for predicting the water-octanol partition coefficient, logP(OW), are reported. The models are based on local properties calculated at the standard isodensity surface using semiempirical molecular orbital theory and use descriptors obtained as the areas of the surface found in each bin in a predefined binning(More)
We have used a set of four local properties based on semiempirical molecular orbital calculations (electron density (ρ), hydrogen bond donor field (HDF), hydrogen bond acceptor field (HAF), and molecular lipophilicity potential (MLP)) for 3D-QSAR studies to overcome the limitations of the current force field-based molecular interaction fields (MIFs). These(More)
Feed-forward artificial neural nets have been used to recognize H-bond donor and acceptor sites on drug-like molecules based on local properties (electron density, molecular electrostatic potential and local ionization energy, electron affinity, and polarizability) calculated at grid points around the molecule. Interaction energies for training were(More)
A series of density functional/basis set combinations and second-order Møller-Plesset calculations have been used to test their ability to reproduce the trends observed experimentally for the strengths of hydrogen-bond acceptors in order to identify computationally efficient techniques for routine use in the computational drug-design process. The effects of(More)
