The aim of the book series is to publish cutting-edge research and the latest developments in QSAR modeling applied to environmental and health issues. Its aim is also to publish routinely used QSAR methodologies to provide newcomers to the field with a basic grounding in the correct use of these computer tools. The series is of primary interest to those whose research or professional activity is directly concerned with the development and application of SAR and QSAR models in toxicology and ecotoxicology. It is also intended to provide graduate and postgraduate students with clear and accessible books covering the different aspects of QSARs.

The pKa of a compound describes its acidity or basicity and, therefore, is one of its most important properties. Its value determines what form of the compound—positive ion, negative ion, or neutral species—will be present under different circumstances. This is crucial to the action and detection...
