There are several indices that provide an indication of different types on the performance of QSAR classification models, being the area under a Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) curve still the most powerful test to overall assess such performance. All ROC related parameters can be calculated for both the training and test sets, but, nevertheless,(More)
Chemically reactive, alpha, beta-unsaturated carbonyl compounds are common environmental pollutants able to produce a wide range of adverse effects, including, e.g. mutagenicity. This toxic property can often be related to chemical structure, in particular to specific molecular substructures or fragments (alerts), which can then be used in specialized(More)
This study aims at developing a quantitative structure-property relationship (QSPR) model for predicting complexation with beta-cyclodextrins (beta-CD) based on a large variety of organic compounds. Molecular descriptors were computed following the TOPological Substructural MOlecular DEsign (TOPS-MODE) approach and correlated with beta-CD complex stability(More)
The risk of the presence of haloacetic acids in drinking water as chlorination by-products and the shortage of experimental mutagenicity data for most of them requires a research work. This paper describes a QSAR model to predict direct mutagenicity for these chemicals. The model, able to describe more than 90% of the variance in the experimental activity,(More)
