I'm aware that cxcalc can be used to produce the microspecies relative abundances for a given pH. However, I gather this uses the ChemAxon pKa calculator do to this? I wish to generate microspecies using in-house experimentally derived pKa values. Is it possible that this can be done, at least using ChemAxon tools? Can a ChemAxon pKa-trained model be used in addition?
Thank you in advance,
Yes, you can use cxcalc to predict the microspecies distribution of your molecules. All functions that are available in Marvin can be accessed via cxcalc as well.
However, you can't use in-house pKa data to predict microspecies distribution directly (that is you can't predict microspecies data solely based on your pKa values). The only way to do this is to train our predictor with your in-house pKa data. If the training is successful, your data will be taken into account.
I hope this helps,
These deep details of the ChemAxon pKa predictor and microspecies calculator are not public, so unfortunately I can't tell you more about them.
Thank you for your understanding.
