Cocrystal Prediction by Artificial Neural Networks

A significant amount of attention has been given to the design and synthesis of cocrystals by both industry and academia because of its potential to change a molecule’s physicochemical properties. This paper reports on the application of a data-driven cocrystal prediction method, based on two types of artificial neural network models and cocrystal data present in the Cambridge Structural Database. The models accept pairs of coformers and predict whether a cocrystal is likely to form.
