Detailed Description

Corrections for pH used by OBMol::CorrectForPH().

The data/phmodel.txt file contains transformations which are applied to correct the charges for a given pH. This function uses the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation to calculate which species (protonated/ unprotonated) is present in the highest concentration at the given pH.

For acids an entry would look like:

  # carboxylic acid
  O=C[OD1:1] >> O=C[O-:1]       4.0

The 4.0 is the pKa for the dissociation [HA] -> [H+] + [A-]. To calculate [HA]/[A-] we use:

  [HA] / [A-] = 10^(pKa - pH)

  [HA]/[A-] > 1  :  [HA] > [A-]
  [HA]/[A-] < 1  :  [A-] > [HA]

For a base, an entry would look be:

  # methyl amine
  C[N:1] >> C[N+:1]     10.7

Here, the 10.7 is the pKa for the dissociation [BH+] -> [H+] + [B:]. To calculate [BH+]/[B:] we use:

  [BH+] / [B:] = 10^(pKa - pH)

  [BH+]/[B:] > 1  :  [BH+] > [B:]
  [BH+]/[B:] < 1  :  [B:] > [BH+]

The transformations are all applied (if needed at the specified pH value) in the same order they are found in data/phmodel.txt.
