The Session is an introduction to cheminformatics-in particular predicting properties of substances that are related to structure. Many commercial software packages contain the tools either in a stand-alone package (or using a spreadsheet) to determine correlation coefficients between experimentally known properties and structural properties. These quantitative relationships can then be used to predict properties for additional substances. The Laboratory consists of a QSPR investigation.
