Simplex representation of molecular structure (SiRMS):

Simplex - tetratomic fragments of fixed composition, structure, chirality and symmetry

Simplex descriptor - number of identical simplexes in a molecule

Example of 2D simplexes generation for formic acid

Simplex example

Simplex labeling example


  • vertexes in simplexes can be labeled by different atomic properties like lipophilcity, partial charge, donor/acceptor of H-bond, etc;
  • simplexes describe individual compounds, multi-fragment compounds and mixtures of chemical compounds;
  • simplex descriptors are interpretable by design.

We have two implementations of simplex descriptors (they are incompartible with each other)
