Instead, adidate molecules which are predicted to have theperties can be used as a starting point for more fo-rimental synthesis. This general method is appli-h varied products as catalysts, polymers, solvents,nts.

The forward problem predicts propertiesbased on molecule structure; the backward step identifies astructure to obtain a molecule with a given set of target proper-ties. Property prediction is usually based on either group con-tribution methods or topological indices. The group contribu-tion approach has been most widely reported (Gani, Nielsen,&amp; Fredenslund, 1991; Harper &amp; Gani, 2000; Harper, Hostrup,&amp; Gani, 2003; Sahinidis &amp; Tawarmalani, 2000; Sahinidis,Tawarmalani, &amp; Yu, 2003; Vaidyanathan &amp; El-Halwagi,1996; Venkatasubramanian et al., 1994). Constaninou andGani (1994) and Constantinou, Gani, and OConnell (1995)described a two-level group contribution method which uti-lizes molecular structure information to estimate the phys-ical and thermodynamic properties of pure components. Athree-level group contribution method proposed by Marreroand Gani (2001) exhibits improved accuracy and applicabil-ity to deal with bio-chemically and environmentally-relatedcompounds.
