Abstract
Six physical properties (enthalpy, density, decomposition temperature, solubility in water, pKa values, and hydronium potential) were examined by molecular modeling techniques. The molecular connectivity index, Wiener distance index, and Ad hoc descriptor are employed as structural parameters to encode information about branching, size, cyclization, unsaturation, heteroatom content, and polarizability. This paper examines the correlation of the molecular modeling techniques parameters and the physicochemical properties of amino acids. As a results, calculated values were in agreement with experimental data in the above six physical properties of amino acids and the molecular connectivity index was superior to the other indices in fitting the calculated data.
