The ALOGPS 2.1 was developed to predict 1-octanol/water partition coefficients, logP, and aqueous solubility of neutral compounds. An exclusive feature of this program is its ability to incorporate new user-provided data by means of self-learning properties of Associative Neural Networks. Using this feature, it calculated a similar performance, RMSE = 0.7 and mean average error 0.5, for 2569 neutral logP, and 8122 pH-dependent logD(7.4), distribution coefficients from the AstraZeneca "in-house" database. The high performance of the program for the logD(7.4) prediction looks surprising, because this property also depends on ionization constants pKa. Therefore, logD(7.4) is considered to be more difficult to predict than its neutral analog. We explain and illustrate this result and, moreover, discuss a possible application of the approach to calculate other pharmacokinetic and biological activities of chemicals important for drug development.
