Structure-based AI tool can predict wide range of very different reactions


New software has been created that can predict a wide range of reaction outcomes but is also more flexible than other programs when it comes to dealing with completely different chemical problems. The machine-learning platform, which uses structure-based molecular representations instead of big reaction-based datasets, could find diverse applications in organic chemistry. Although machine-learning methods have been widely used to predict the molecular properties and biological activities of target molecules, their application in predicting reaction outcomes has been limited because current models usually can't be transferred to different problems. Instead, complex parameterisation is required for each individual case to achieve good results. Researchers in Germany are now reporting a general approach that overcomes this limitation.
