2 2 Vrije Universiteit Brussel 1. Introduction Similarity  Fundamental concept in chemistry / pharmacology Chirality  Lots of pharmacologically important molecules Assume: degree of chirality linked to (dis)similarity of 2 enantiomers dissimilarity = 1- similarity How quantify molecular similarity?

3 3 Vrije Universiteit Brussel Quantify dissimilarity of enantiomers Global & local similarity indices Orientation! Conformations! Illustration Mezey’s “Holographic Electron Density Theorem”  sp 3, sp 2, sp 1 carbon chirality dissimilarity link 2. Objectives

4 4 Vrije Universiteit Brussel 3. Similarity indices Carbó index: generalized cosine index MQSM perfect similarity Use next to  (r) also eliminates dominant effect of core electrons

5 5 Vrije Universiteit Brussel Local SI Hohenberg – Kohn Mezey: Holographic Electron Density Theorem compatible with a single (r)  (r) for a given ground state electrons (r) nuclei E=E  (r), N E=E     (finite, arbitrary subdomain) (r)(r) (positions & charges)

6 6 Vrije Universiteit Brussel Hirshfeld partitioning Total electron density  (r)  atomic contributions  A (r) Global index converted to local analogue: Promolecular density Contribution C* to total  R (r) Contribution C* to product  R (r)  S (r)
