The effect of the structure of organic compounds on the acute toxicity upon oral injection in mice was studied using 2D simplex representation of the molecular structure and Random forest (RF) methods. Satisfactory quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) models were constructed (R2 test = 0,61–0,62). The interpretation of the obtained QSAR models was carried out. The contributions of known toxicophores with established mechanisms of action were calculated in order to confirm the ability of the interpretation approach to correctly rank them relative to other structural fragments. The influence of the molecular surroundings of some toxicophores was analyzed. We analyzed the contributions of other highly ranked fragments from the list of common functional groups and ring systems in order to find new potential toxicophores. The on-line version of the expert system “OCHEM” (https://ochem.eu) and Arithmetic Mean Toxicity (AMT) approach were used for a comparative QSAR study.
