Abstract: A model based on chemical structure was developed for the accurate prediction of octanol/water partition coefficient (Kow) of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), which are molecules of environmental interest. Partial least squares (PLS) was used to build the regression model. Topological indices were used as molecular descriptors. Variable selection was performed by Hierarchical Cluster Analysis (HCA). In the modeling process, the experimental Kow measured for 30 PCBs by thin-layer chromatography - retention time (TLC-RT) has been used. The developed model (Q2 = 0,990 and r2 = 0,994) was used to estimate the log Kow values for the 179 PCB congeners whose Kow data have not yet been measured by TLC-RT method. The results showed that topological indices can be very useful to predict the Kow.
