The RMG Database for Chemical Property Prediction



The RMG-database for chemical property prediction is presented. The RMG-database consists of curated datasets and estimators for accurately predicting parameters necessary for constructing a wide variety of chemical kinetic mechanisms, including thermodynamics, kinetics, solvation effects, and transport properties. For thermochemistry prediction, the RMG-database contains 45 libraries of thermochemical parameters with a combined 4564 entries, a group additivity scheme with nine types of corrections including radical, polycyclic and surface absorption corrections with 1580 total curated groups and parameters for a graph convolutional neural net trained using transfer learning from a set of >130,000 DFT calculations to 10,000 high-quality values. Correction schemes for solvent-solute effects, important for thermochemistry in the liquid phase, are available. They include tabled values for 195 pure solvents and 152 common solutes and a group additivity scheme for predicting the properties of arbitrary solutes. For kinetics estimation the database contains 92 libraries of kinetic parameters containing a combined 21,000 reactions and contains rate rule schemes for 87 reaction classes trained on 8655 curated training reactions. Additional libraries and estimators are available for transport properties. All of this information is easily accessible through the graphical user interface at Bulk or on-the-fly use can be facilitated by interfacing directly with the RMG Python package which can be installed from Anaconda. The RMG-database provides kineticists with easy access to estimates of the many parameters they need to model and analyze kinetic systems. This helps speed up and facilitate kinetic analysis by enabling easy hypothesis testing on pathways, by providing parameters for model construction and by providing information to check other kinetic parameters against.
