The derivation of a new 3D QSAR field based on the electrotopological state (E-state) formalism is described. A complementary index and its associated field, the HE-state, describing the polarity of hydrogens is also defined. These new fields are constructed from a nonempirical index that incorporates electronegativity, the inductive influence of(More)
The role of a scientist is to study nature and to attempt to unlock her secrets. In order to pursue this goal, a certain process is usually followed, normally starting with observations. The scientist observes some part of the natural world and attempts to find patterns in the behaviors observed. These patterns, when they are found in what may be a quite(More)
A very significant linear correlation was found between a recently proposed connectivity index and molecular polarizability, cavity surface areas calculated for water solubility of alcohols and hydrocarbons, and biological potencies of nonspecific local anesthetics. The simplicity of calculation of the index from the connectivity in the molecular skeleton,(More)
Three QSAR methods, artificial neural net (ANN), k-nearest neighbors (kNN), and Decision Forest (DF), were applied to 3363 diverse compounds tested for their Ames genotoxicity. The ratio of mutagens to non-mutagens was 60/40 for this dataset. This group of compounds includes >300 therapeutic drugs. All models were developed using the same initial set of 148(More)
