Class HBondDonorCountDescriptor

All Implemented Interfaces:
IDescriptor, IMolecularDescriptor

public class HBondDonorCountDescriptor extends AbstractMolecularDescriptor implements IMolecularDescriptor
This descriptor calculates the number of hydrogen bond donors using a slightly simplified version of the PHACIR atom types. The following groups are counted as hydrogen bond donors:
  • Any-OH where the formal charge of the oxygen is non-negative (i.e. formal charge ≥ 0)
  • Any-NH where the formal charge of the nitrogen is non-negative (i.e. formal charge ≥ 0)

This descriptor uses no parameters.

This descriptor works properly with AtomContainers whose atoms contain either implicit or explicit hydrogen atoms. It does not work with atoms that contain neither implicit nor explicit hydrogens. Returns a single value named nHBDon.

Parameters for this descriptor:

    • getDescriptorNames

      public String[] getDescriptorNames()
      Description copied from interface: IDescriptor
      Returns an array of names for each descriptor value calculated. Many descriptors return multiple values. In general it is useful for the descriptor to indicate the names for each value. In many cases, these names can be as simple as X1, X2, ..., XN where X is a prefix and 1, 2, ..., N are the indices. On the other hand it is also possible to return other arbitrary names, which should be documented in the Javadocs for the descriptor (e.g., the CPSA descriptor). Note that by default if a descriptor returns a single value (such as ALOGPDescriptor the return array will have a single element
      Specified by:
      getDescriptorNames in interface IDescriptor
      An array of descriptor names, equal in length to the number of descriptor calculated..
    • calculate

      public DescriptorValue calculate(IAtomContainer atomContainer)
      Calculates the number of H bond donors.
      Specified by:
      calculate in interface IMolecularDescriptor
      atomContainer - AtomContainer
      number of H bond donors
    • getDescriptorResultType

      public IDescriptorResult getDescriptorResultType()
      Returns the specific type of the DescriptorResult object. The return value from this method really indicates what type of result will be obtained from the DescriptorValue object. Note that the same result can be achieved by interrogating the DescriptorValue object; this method allows you to do the same thing, without actually calculating the descriptor.
      Specified by:
      getDescriptorResultType in interface IMolecularDescriptor
      an object that implements the IDescriptorResult interface indicating the actual type of values returned by the descriptor in the DescriptorValue object
    • getParameterNames

      public String[] getParameterNames()
      Gets the parameterNames of the HBondDonorCountDescriptor.
      Specified by:
      getParameterNames in interface IDescriptor
      null as this descriptor does not have any parameters
    • getParameterType

      public Object getParameterType(String name)
      Gets the parameterType of the HBondDonorCountDescriptor.
      Specified by:
      getParameterType in interface IDescriptor
      name - Description of the Parameter
      null as this descriptor does not have any parameters
