Minnesota Solvation (MNSOL) Database

An extensive and vetted database of free energies of solvation.
Technology No. 2020-340


  • Chemical engineering
  • Drug development
  • Developing solubility and bioavailability predictive models


The Minnesota Solvation Database consists of a collection of 3037 experimental free energies of solvation or transfer free energies for 790 unique solutes in 92 solvents (including water) and gas-phase M06-2X/MG3S optimized molecular geometries in Cartesian coordinates for the corresponding solutes. All of the 790 solutes in this database (541 neutrals and 249 singly-charged ions) contain at most the following elements: H, C, N, O, F, Si, P, S, Cl, Br, and I. User manual with detailed description of the dataset and example calculations is included.
