ComputeGasteigerCharges(...)

 

ComputeGasteigerCharges( (Mol)mol [, (int)nIter=12 [, (bool)throwOnParamFailure=False]]) -> None :
    Compute Gasteiger partial charges for molecule
    
     The charges are computed using an iterative procedure presented in 
     
     Ref : J.Gasteiger, M. Marseli, Iterative Equalization of Oribital Electronegatiity 
     A Rapid Access to Atomic Charges, Tetrahedron Vol 36 p3219 1980
     
     The computed charges are stored on each atom are stored a computed property ( under the name 
     _GasteigerCharge). In addition, each atom also stored the total charge for the implicit hydrogens 
     on the atom (under the property name _GasteigerHCharge)
     
     ARGUMENTS:
    
        - mol : the molecule of interrest
        - nIter : number of iteration (defaults to 12)
        - throwOnParamFailure : toggles whether or not an exception should be raised if parameters
          for an atom cannot be found.  If this is false (the default), all parameters for unknown
          atoms will be set to zero.  This has the effect of removing that atom from the iteration.
    
    

    C++ signature :
        void ComputeGasteigerCharges(RDKit::ROMol const* [,int=12 [,bool=False]])
