I'm curious about the sp3-Atoms count from the Calculate Properties->Atom Counts section. Generally for fraction sp3 calculations, it's # of sp3 carbon atoms divided by total carbon atoms. The sp3-Atoms count from DW seems to over-count, just not sure what else it's including.

In the attached photo, for the compound I count 3 sp3 carbon atoms, but DW returns 5.

Feature request: it might be more useful for users if it calculated the fraction of sp3 carbons instead of just # of sp3 atoms, as it's common to report the fraction for druglike compounds.

Thanks and keep up the good work!

Dear mvamos,

based on the SMILES string generated by DW for this very structure, yet submitted to RDKit (2020.09.4) suggests different programs assign sp3-hybridization differently. In the case of RDKit, including fluorine [sic!], a total of 6.

Dear Mvamos,

DataWarrior considers C,N,O,P,S as potential sp3 atoms. In your case the 2 oxygen atoms are considered to be sp3 in addition to the 3 obvious carbon atoms. I agree that an ether-oxygen doesn't contribute much to the 3D-shape of a molecule, but the same is true for an (sp3) methyl group. It is a formal number. sp3 fraction in carbon atoms is simple and I will add it...

I just deployed an update with 'sp3-Carbon Fraction', which is the count of sp3 carbons devided by all carbons as proposed in the 'Escape from flatland' paper.
