MPBPWIN v1.43 model details

Reference to the type of model used

This program (MPBPWIN) estimates the boiling point (at 760 mm Hg), melting point and vapor pressure of organic compounds. MPBPWIN requires only a chemical structure to make these predictions. MPBPWIN estimates vapour pressure (VP) using the estimated boiling point.

 

Description of the applicability domain

Currently there is no universally accepted definition of model domain. However, users may wish to consider the possibility that property estimates are less accurate for compounds outside the

Molecular Weight range of the training set compounds, and/or that have more instances of a given fragment than the maximum for all training set compounds. It is also possible that a compound may have a functional group(s) or other structural features not represented in the training set, and for which no fragment coefficient was developed. These points should be taken into consideration when interpreting model results.

 

Training Set Molecular Weights:

Minimum MW: 16.04

Maximum MW: 943.17

Average MW: 194.22

Description and results of any possible structural analogues of the substance to assess reliability of the prediction

Internal validation with a dataset containing 3037 substances resulted in a correlation coefficient (r2) of 0.914, a standard deviation of 1.057 and an average deviation of 0.644.

Predictivity assessment of the internal validation set:

Validation Set Estimation Error:

within <= 0.10 - 34.1%

within <= 0.20 - 45.6%

within <= 0.40 - 60.0%

within <= 0.50 - 64.9%

within <= 0.60 - 69.0%

within <= 0.80 - 75.0%

within <= 1.00 - 80.0%

Uncertainty of the prediction

All constituents for which estimations were made fall within the applicability domain of the model.

Mechanistic domain

This program (MPBPWIN) estimates the boiling point (at 760 mm Hg), melting point and vapour pressure of organic compounds. MPBPWIN requires only a chemical structure to make these predictions. MPBPWIN estimates vapor pressure (VP) by three separate methods:

(1) the Antoine method,

(2) the modified Grain method, and

(3) the Mackay method.

 

All three use the normal boiling point to estimate VP. Unless the user enters a boiling point on the data entry screen, MPBPWIN uses the estimated boiling point from the adapted Stein and Brown method (For more information see: Stein, S.E. and Brown, R.L.   1994.   Estimation of normal boiling points from group contributions. J. Chem. Inf. Comput. Sci. 34: 581-7). MPBPWIN reports the VP estimate from all three methods. It then reports a "suggested" VP. For liquids and gases, the suggested VP is the average of the Antoine and the modified Grain estimates. The Mackay method is not used in the suggested VP because its application is currently limited to its derivation classes.

Conclusions:
The vapour pressure of 3-methylsulfolane is 0.885 Pa at 25°C.
Executive summary:

The vapour pressure of 3-methylsulfolane was estimated by calculation. The vapour pressure for the monoconstituent was estimated using the QSAR MPBPWIN v 1.43.

The vapour pressure of 3-methylsulfolane was found to be 0.885 Pa at 25 °C (QSAR).

Description of key information
