As part of our general QSPR treatment of solubility (started in the preceding paper), we now present quantitative relationships between solvent structures and the solvation free energies of individual solutes. Solvation free energies of 80 diverse organic solutes are each modeled in a range from 15 to 82 solvents using our CODESSA PRO software. Significant(More)
We present an extended QSPR modeling of solubilities of about 500 substances in series of up to 69 diverse solvents. The models are obtained with our new software package, CODESSA PRO, which is furnished with an advanced variable selection procedure and a large pool of theoretically derived molecular descriptors. The squared correlation coefficients and(More)
The partitioning of 29 small organic probes in a PEG-2000/(NH4)2SO4 biphasic system was investigated using a quantitative structure-property relationship (QSPR) approach. A three-descriptor equation with the squared correlation coefficient (R2) of 0.97 for the partition coefficient (log D) was obtained. All descriptors were derived solely from the chemical(More)
Molecular field topology analysis, scaffold hopping, and molecular docking were used as complementary computational tools for the design of repellents for Aedes aegypti, the insect vector for yellow fever, chikungunya, and dengue fever. A large number of analogues were evaluated by virtual screening with Glide molecular docking software. This produced(More)
Efficient scrubbing of mercury vapour from natural gas streams has been demonstrated both in the laboratory and on an industrial scale, using chlorocuprate(II) ionic liquids impregnated on high surface area porous solid supports, resulting in the effective removal of mercury vapour from natural gas streams. This material has been commercialised for use(More)
A new model for predicting the UV-visible absorption spectra of secondary organic aerosols (SOA) has been developed. The model consists of two primary parts: a SOA formation model and a semiempirical quantum chemistry method. The mass of SOA is predicted using the PHRCSOA (Partitioning Heterogeneous Reaction Consortium Secondary Organic Aerosol) model(More)
Phenomenological analysis of existing hydrogen bond (HB) donor and acceptor scales and apparent physical considerations have enabled the establishment of new quantitative scales of hydrogen bond basicity and acidity. Chemical structures represented by molecular graphs and the orbital electronegativities of Hinze and Jaffe are utilized as an input data. The(More)
The Kirchhoff charge model is a viable method of generating inexpensive and electrostatically reasonable atomic charges for molecular mechanical force fields. The charging method uses a computationally fast algorithm based on the principle of electronegativity relaxation. Parameters of the method, orbital electronegativities and hardnesses, are fitted to(More)
The chemical similarity of antibacterial cyclic peptides and peptidomimetics was studied in order to identify new promising cyclic scaffolds. A large descriptor space coupled with cluster analysis was employed to digitize known antibacterial structures and to gauge the potential of new peptidomimetic macrocycles, which were conveniently synthesized by(More)
