Abstract: From a series of 50 MK801 derivative molecules, a selected set of 44 compounds was submitted to a principal components analysis (PCA), a multiple regression analysis (MRA), and a neural network (NN). This study shows that the compounds' activity correlates reasonably well with the selected descriptors encoding the chemical structures. The correlation coefficients calculated by MRA and there after by NN, r = 0.986 and r = 0.974 respectively, are fairly good to evaluate a quantitative model, and to predict activity for MK801 derivatives. To test the performance of this model, the activities of the remained set of 6 compounds are deduced from the proposed quantitative model, by NN. This study proved that the predictive power of this model is relevant.
