Omega TK 2.4.5

New features

  • Now uses an extension of the MMFF94 force field for tricoordinate boron compounds. Most compounds containing B-X bonds where X=C,N,O,S, and H are covered with the following exceptions: X=N(imine),N(sulfonamide), N(pyridinium) and N(quaternary). Also not supported are compounds in which boron is bonded to X=F,Cl,Br,I,B and Si, or makes a bond angle BYX. Compounds in which boron is a part of four-membered rings of B1CCC1 type are also not available in the current parameterization because their existence is questionable: Ab initio calculations at the MP2/6-31G** level failed to identify stable structures for them (highly polar structures in which boron is four-coordinated are formed).
