Regio-Selectivity Prediction with a Machine-Learned Reaction Representation and On-the-Fly Quantum Mechanical Descriptors


We introduce a new method that combines machine-learned reaction representation with selected quantum mechanical descriptors to predict regio-selectivity in general substitution reactions. We construct a reactivity descriptor database based on ab initio calculations of 130k organic molecules, and train a multi-task constrained model to calculate demanded descriptors on-the-fly.
