BACKGROUND QSAR is among the most extensively used computational methodology for analogue-based design. The application of various descriptor classes like quantum chemical, molecular mechanics, conceptual density functional theory (DFT)- and docking-based descriptors for predicting anti-cancer activity is well known. Although in vitro assay for anti-cancer(More)
The formation of zwitterionic adducts between neutral nucleophiles such as NMe(3) and PMe(3) with neutral electrophiles such as methyl vinyl ketone (MVK) has been studied with a wide variety of theoretical methods. It has been found that hybrid density functional methods such as B3LYP are not capable of describing these zwitterionic structures as minima on(More)
The methyl cation affinity (MCA; 298 K) of a variety of neutral and anionic bases has been examined computationally with a wide variety of theoretical methods. These include high-level composite procedures such as W1, G3, G3B3, and G2, conventional ab initio methods such as CCSD(T) and MP2, as well as a selection of density functional theory (DFT) methods.(More)
