Get molecular angle information using RDKit

Now, I’m thinking new molecular similarity score.
It uses molecular angle information.

RDKit has some functions that calculate dihedral or some angles.
Like this..

from rdkit import Chem
from rdkit.Chem import rdMolTransforms
mol = Chem.MolFromSmiles( "N1CCNCC1" )
from rdkit.Chem import AllChem
#generate one confomer.
atoms=[a for a in mol.GetAtoms()]
for a in atoms:
print( a.GetIdx(), a.GetSymbol() )

out put is…
0 N
1 C
2 C
3 N
4 C
5 C
Calculate torsion angle.

#113.92146321507079 ( degree )

Next, calculate dihedral angle between N-C / C-N.

rdMolTransforms.GetDihedralDeg(conf, 0,1,2,3)

I got -57.29664523229906 ( deg )

Works fine.

I’ll go to next step. 😉
