Computational Approaches for the Prediction of pKa Values

George C. Shields, Paul G. Seybold
October 18, 2017

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...
