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)
Longitudinal studies on brain pathology and assessment of therapeutic strategies rely on a fully mature adult brain to exclude confounds of cerebral developmental changes. Thus, knowledge about onset of adulthood is indispensable for discrimination of developmental phase and adulthood. We have performed a high-resolution longitudinal MRI study at 11.7T of(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)
PURPOSE Inhibition of angiogenesis has shown clinical success in patients with cancer. Thus, imaging approaches that allow for the identification of angiogenic tumors and the detection of response to anti-angiogenic treatment are of high clinical relevance. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN We established an in vivo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) approach that allows(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)
We present thermocalc, a Perl module to perform the automated calculation of atomization energies and heats of formation for lists of molecules. The methods used are based on density functional theory and second-order perturbation theory to ensure that data sets of medium sized to large molecules can be run at reasonable throughput rates. The quantum(More)
A model for prediction of percent intestinal absorption (%Abs) of neutral molecules was developed based upon surface charges of the molecule calculated by density functional theory (DFT). The surface charges are decomposed into sigma moments which are correlated to a partition coefficient representing transfer of the molecule between water and the(More)
