As every chemist knows, there is a direct (if complex) relationship between the molecular structure of a compound and its chemical behavior. Predicting such behavior is possible by an abstract representation of its structure in terms of chemical similarity parameters, so–called ′descriptors′. These are most useful in predicting the pharmacological properties of drug candidates, but are also used in predicting reactivity, toxicity and other important chemical characteristics.

The number–one reference on the topic now contains a wealth of new data: The entire relevant literature over the past six years has been painstakingly surveyed, resulting in more than 100 new descriptors being added to the list, and some 3,000 new references in the bibliography section.

Volume 1 contains an alphabetical listing of around 3300 terms for the chemoinformatic analysis of chemical compound properties, while the second volume contains 6343 references selected from 450 journals with about 7000 authors quoted covering the period from the beginning of molecular descriptor research until the year 2008.

In this second edition, the greatly expanded introductory section has been completely re–written and now contains several "walk–through" reading lists of selected keywords to make the data even more accessible for novice users.

"Outstandingly succeeds in its aim, it really is a magnificent work and every scientific ad medical library and group linked to the field should have a copy." (Current Engineering Practice, 2011)

"The comprehensive listing of descriptors... is the actual strength of the book. Even experts in the field will find these sections helpful, because these are at the level of reviews." (ChemMedChem, 2010)"Outstandingly succeeds in its aim, it really is a magnificent work and every scientific ad medical library and group linked to the field should have a copy." (Current Engineering Practice, 2010)

This is an outstanding book, a book that will be appreciated by many, not only today and in the near future, as is the case with most scientific books, but for years to come. I would like without any hesitation to strongly recommend this book as an essential instrument in all chemometrics laboratories all over the world. (Journal of Chemical Information and Modeling, January 2010)
