Abstract: Correlation for estimation of the aqueous solubility (logSw) of chlorinatedhydrocarbons molecules is proposed. The MCI based quantitative structure-propertyrelationship (QSPR) model proposed is predictive and requires only three connectivityindices in the calculation. The correlation equation obtained which is based on a training setof 50 chlorinated hydrocarbons has a correlation coefficient of 0.9670 and a standard errorof 0.44 log10 units. Application of the developed model to a testing set of 73 chlorinatedhydrocarbons demonstrates that the new model is reliable with good predictive accuracy andsimple formulation. Besides, the model does not require any experimental physicochemicalproperties in the calculation, so it is easy to apply, especially in cases where it isinconvenient or impossible to measure the physicochemical properties.
Keywords: molecular connectivity index; aqueous solubility; QSPR; chlorinated hydrocarbons; property model
