Abstract — Quantitative structure property relationships are systematically studied for glass transition temperature simulation of polyacrylate. A newly developed descriptor-generalized correlative index is used for the expression of chemical structure of polyacrylate. A multiple linear regression model is built after screening some insignificant parameters with the stepwise multiple regression technique. The correlation coefficient ^cum and cross-validated correlation coefficient Qcum are 0.991 and 0.985, respectively. Furthermore, the superior performance of the MLR model is tested by the external set, the correlation coefficient is Qext = 0.920. In conclusion, generalized correlative index descriptor can be used for estimating and predicting glass transition temperature of polyacrylate.

Nowadays, polyacrylate has been applicated universally [1]. Due to the different functional group, polyacrylate can show different characteristics. According to the flexible of the polyacrylate molecular, they always have a low glass temperature. It is widely that the polyacrylate have been used in the field of decoration material, thermal glue adhesive, finishing agent, cosmetics and so on. Emulsion of the polyacrylate is one of the most commonly synthetic emulsions in recent years. They are always used as the coating adhesive and special rubber due to their outstanding ability on heat resistance, oxidant, and oil as well as strong adhesive function on both polar and non-polar surface. However, the application of these kinds of materials always constrained by the deficiency such as lower heat resistance temperature, using temperature, lower surface hardness and lower impact properties [2]. As a result, glass temperature Tg actually plays an importance role in their application and processing, testing their heat resistance function and indicting their nature and performance. Since that, Tg is a significant nature in high polymer synthesis and application [3, 4]. Since most kinds of physical parameters in molecule system can be well represented by the quantum chemical calculation, it is widely used in the quantitative structure-property relationship (QSPR) researches [5—9]. In this article, the generalized correlative in-

dex (GCI) has been used to simulate and to predict the glass temperature Tg of polyacrylate.


Description of Structure

According to the huge number and uncertainty of polymer, we can use the monomer instead and end the chain with hydrogen [10, 11]. Then we can get the relationship between Tg and structure [12]. The structures are shown in Scheme 1 [13, 14].

Introduction of the Correlative Concepts with Generalize Correlation Index

Incorporating ideas of "facing to users" and "self-adaptability" into modern molecular structural characteristic (MSC) methods, GCI is proposed via some definitions as atomic branched degree (ABD), property correlative parameters (PCP), generalized correlative function (GCF) and distance-relational function (DRF).

Atomic branched degree (ABD) abstracts the non-hydrogen atom in organic compound as a topological

picture. All the structure informations are given by the way that how top atoms connect with each other. From a topological perspective, local topological characteristic can be embodied into the embranchment degree of certain vertex in connection with other ones in different amounts. Thus ABD is defined as numbers of atoms binding to nonhydrogen atoms (Table 1). As a result, we define the ABD as the number of non-hydrogen bond in the compound. Absolutely, for most of the organic molecular, its ABD varies only from 1—4 (except methane).

Property correlative parameter (PCP): as is well known, atom sustains molecular external properties as the basic unit. In GCI, PCP is primarily defined by the users themselves, which is not specially restricted and targets to possibly relate with practical applications. PCP is often categorized in three different ways. (a) Fundamental atomic attributions, that is related only with atomic types, e.g. atomic weight, VDW bulk, and electronegativity; (b) Atomic status attribution, that is not only related to the atomic type, but also to the hybridized state and chemical environments, e.g. hydrophobic property and hybridized state; (Table 2 has listed several common atomic hybridization state indexes (AHSI) and their relative values) (c) Atomic experimental attribution, that is directly derived from experimental measurements, e.g. nuclear magnitude resonance, eigenvalue spectrum etc. What should be elucidated is that large difference in the order of magnitude would be induced due to disunified units among different kinds of properties. Thus sp3 C is served as the standard atom and relative property correlative parameter (RPCP) is defined as the ratio of other atoms to that, thus fulfilling a direct calculation of generalized indexes.

The main idea of GCI is focused on an indirect reflection of the overall molecular structures via ex-

pressing correlativeness among different atomic properties. This correlativeness does not reflect the two changing trends in a specific interaction manner: one varies in a negative manner with the increase or decrease of interatomic distances and the other varies in a negative manner with the change in atomic properties. GCI is then given out by above-mentioned assumption, i.e. the function collections satisfying conditions of positively and negatively related with atomic properties and interatomic distance. The formula is as follows:

G([n, n], dif; a) = [ni, nj] ■/(df a), (1)

where a is the function-determined parameter set, n and n represent the property-correlative parameters between the atoms i and j, dy is the certain of distance measurement between atom i and j. Obviously, the above formula indicates that atomic correlativeness has a positive relation with its property where negatively relates with the distance d. So once satisfying a negative relation with distance d, the function f(a; dij) could be served as distance relationship function (DRF). The common DRFs include Gaussian, reciprocal, and exponential.

The Calculation of GCI

According to the ABD, the atoms of organic molecules can be divided to 4 types, thus, 10 interatomic interactions exist in all different kinds of atoms. We named it as GCI. The equation is given as follows,

gcik_ L = ^ ^ G(a; n, n,, dj

i e Kj e L

( 1 < K < L < 4 ; i * j),


where n and G(-) are the relevance of specific atom chosen by user and GCF, respectively, dy is the shortest relative bond-distance the ration between shortest bond distance between atoms i and j and C—C bond distance. At the same time, the ration of some chemical bond length and C—C single bond length is called relative bond-length.
