Concepts and Applications of Molecular Similarity by Mark A. Johnson, Gerald M. Maggiora

Concepts and Applications of Molecular Similarity



Concepts and Applications of Molecular Similarity by Mark A. Johnson, Gerald M. Maggiora

Authoritative overviews of topics related to the definition, computation and application of molecular similarity are offered by this volume, which emphasizes current research trends with molecular similarity as the unifying concept. The text introduces and defines the concept of molecular similarity and explains how it can be used to explore the data containing 2-D and 3-D chemical information. The text also addresses the basic problem of relating chemical structures to their associated chemical and biological properties. Final chapters illustrate the use of similarity arguments in the study of chemical reaction pathways and present theoretical approaches to the concept of molecular similarity.
