Three new virtual databases have been developed for use with the bond-orientation-based database searching program CAVEAT. These consist of a database of trisubstituted monocyclic hydrocarbons having ethyl, vinyl, and phenyl substituents; a database of unsubstituted bicyclic hydrocarbons; and a database of core structures from established combinatorial synthetic methods having hydrogen, ethyl, vinyl, and phenyl substituents at the readily varied positions. Each collection of molecules was subjected to a batch conformational search, minimization, and conversion to a vector database for use with CAVEAT.
