Abstract

A quantitative structure-property relationship (QSPR) model is proposed to explore the relationship between the pKa of various compounds and their structures. Through QSPR studies, the relationship between the structure and properties can be obtained. In this study, a novel chaos-enhanced accelerated particle swarm algorithm (CAPSO) is adopted to screen molecular descriptors and optimize the weights of back propagation artificial neural network (BP ANN). Then, the QSPR model based on CAPSO and BP ANN is proposed and named the CAPSO BP ANN model. The prediction experiment showed that the CAPSO algorithm was a reliable method for screening molecular descriptors. The five molecular descriptors obtained by the CAPSO algorithm could well characterize the molecular structure of each compound in pKa prediction. The experimental results also showed that the CAPSO BP ANN model exhibited good performance in predicting the pKa values of various compounds. The absolute mean relative error, root mean square error, and square correlation coefficient are respectively 0.5364, 0.0632, and 0.9438, indicating the high prediction accuracy. The proposed hybrid intelligent model can be applied in engineering design and the prediction of physical and chemical properties. View Full-Text
