A summary of the technical advances that are incorporated in the fourth major release of the Q-CHEM quantum chemistry program is provided, covering approximately the last seven years. These include developments in density functional theory methods and algorithms, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) property evaluation, coupled cluster and perturbation(More)
The COSMO-RS method, a combination of the quantum chemical dielectric continuum solvation model COSMO with COSMO-RS, a statistical thermodynamics treatment of surface interactions, simulations, has been used for the direct, blind prediction of free energies of hydration within the SAMPL challenge. Straight application of the latest version of the COSMOtherm(More)
The COSMO-RS method has been used for the prediction of free energies of hydration on the dataset of 36 chlorinated ethanes, biphenyls and dioxins considered in the SAMPL3 challenge. Straight application of the latest version of the COSMOtherm software yields an overall predictive accuracy of 1.05 kcal/mol (RMSE). The predictions for the chlorinated ethanes(More)
The COSMO-RS method, a combination of the quantum chemical dielectric continuum solvation model COSMO with a COSMO based statistical thermodynamics of surface interactions, has been used in its COSMOtherm implementation for the direct, blind prediction of tautomeric equilibria within the SAMPL2 challenge. Since the quantum chemical level underlying(More)
The COSMO-RS method, a combination of the quantum chemical dielectric continuum solvation model COSMO with a statistical thermodynamics treatment for realistic solvation simulations, has been used for the prediction of base pK(a) constants. For a variety of 43 organic bases the directly calculated values of the free energies of dissociation in water showed(More)
The COSMO-RS method, originally developed for the prediction of liquid-liquid and liquid-vapor equilibrium constants based on quantum chemical calculations, has been extended to solid compounds by addition of a heuristic expression for the Gibbs free energy of fusion. By this addition, COSMO-RS is now capable of a priori prediction of aqueous solubilities(More)
Two sets of molecular descriptors, the five experimental Abraham, and the five COSMOments of Klamt's COSMO-RS, have been compared for a data set of 470 compounds. Both sets are considered as almost complete sets of LFER. The two sets of descriptors are shown to exhibit a large overlap as far as their chemical content. The chemical information however is(More)
The COSMO-RS method, a combination of the quantum chemical dielectric continuum solvation model COSMO with a statistical thermodynamics treatment for realistic solvation simulations, has been used for the prediction of pK(a) values in acetonitrile. For a variety of 93 organic acids, the directly calculated values of the free energies of dissociation in(More)
The COSMO surface polarization charge density σ resulting from quantum chemical calculations combined with a virtual conductor embedding has been widely proven to be a very suitable descriptor for the quantification of interactions of molecules in liquids. In a preceding paper, grid-based local histograms of σ have been introduced in the COSMOsim3D method,(More)
The COSMO-RS method has been used for the prediction of free energies of hydration on a dataset of 47 complex multifunctional compounds considered in the SAMPL4 challenge. Straight application of the COSMOtherm software with the parameterization C21_0108 yields a predictive accuracy of 1.46 kcal/mol root mean square error overall and 1.18 kcal/mol if a(More)
