QSAR and screening (non-testing) methods

QSAR and screening (non-testing) methods

Quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) models are mathematical models that can be used to predict the physico-chemical, ecotoxicological and environmental fate properties of substances from their chemical structure.

As many QSAR models are freely available they provide a cost-effective method of predicting chemical properties, which removes the requirement for costly and laborious laboratory testing. However, the suitability of any QSAR model to predict the properties of a particular chemical needs to be justified.

Our experienced team can offer guidance on the use of QSAR models for regulatory purposes and the development of safer, more sustainable chemical alternatives.
