We developed a regression model for prediction of COOH acidity constant on 19 amino and 16 aliphatic monocarboxylic acids. As variables we employed two subsummations of 3χv index terms, 3χv(chain) and 3χv(side). The calculation of 3χv(chain) includes only atoms constituting the main chain in a molecule, whereas the calculation of 3χv(side) includes atoms from the side chains. The model yielded r = 0.998, S.E. = 0.053 and r = 0.974, S.E. = 0.017, for amino and aliphatic monocarboxylic acids, respectively. As a test set we used three amino acids, valine, leucine, and isoleucine, predicting their pKa values with root-mean-square error, rms = 0.07 (I = 0) and 0.10 (I = 0.1 mol kg−1).
