Title: Predicting Bond Lengths In Planar Benzenoid Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons: A Chemometric Approach
Author: Kiralj R.
Ferreira M.M.C.
Abstract: Two hundred and twenty-three aromatic carbon-carbon bond lengths in high precision crystal structures containing 22 planar condensed benzenoid polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PB-PAHs) were related to the Pauling π-bond order, its analogue corrected to crystal packing effects, the number of hexagonal rings around the bond, and the numbers of carbons atoms around the bond at topological distance one and two. Principal Component Analysis (PCA) showed that the bond lengths in PB-PAHs are at least two-dimensional phenomenon, with well pronounced classification into 12 types of bonds, as confirmed with Hierachical Cluster Analysis (HCA). Consequently, Multiple Linear Regression (MLR) and Partial Least Squares (PLS) models were superior to univariate models, reducing the degeneration of the data set and improving the estimation of Julg's structural aromaticity index. The approximate regression models based on topological descriptors only were built for fast and easy prediction of bond lengths and bond orders in PB-PAHs.
