    Introduction to (Quantitative) Structure Activity Relationships

    Structure-Activity Relationship (SAR) is an approach designed to find relationships between chemical structure (or structural-related properties) and biological activity (or target property) of studied compounds. As such it is the concept of linking chemical structure to a chemical property (e.g., water solubility) or biological activity including toxicity (e.g., fish acute mortality). Qualitative SARs and quantitative SARs,
