Assessment of the Applicability of the LFC/3D-RISM-SCF Scheme for pKa Prediction in Methanol Solutions

  • General Chemistry

Abstract The applicability of the linear fitting correction with the three-dimensional reference interaction-site model self-consistent field (LFC/3D-RISM-SCF) scheme, a pKa prediction scheme, for methanol solutions was investigated. The correlation between experimental and predicted pKa values of dissociative molecules with phenol, amine, and carboxyl derivatives was examined. The pKa values of the LFC/3D-RISM-SCF results showed a good linear correlation with the experimental pKa. This result demonstrates that the LFC/3D-RISM-SCF method can be applied to a variety of solvents other than water.
