Generate 3D structures for molecules using combination of distance geometry and forcefield minimization or minimize existing 3D structures using a specified forcefield.
The supported input file formats are: Mol (.mol), SD (.sdf, .sd), SMILES (.smi) .csv, .tcsv .txt)
The supported output file formats are: SD (.sdf, .sd)
Add hydrogens before minimization.
Conformation generation methodology for generating initial 3D coordinates. Possible values: Standard Distance Geometry, (SDG), Experimental Torsion-angle preference with Distance Geometry (ETDG), basic Knowledge-terms with Distance Geometry (KDG), and Experimental Torsion-angle preference along with basic Knowledge-terms with Distance Geometry (ETKDG) [Ref 129] .
The conformation generation step may be skipped by specifying 'None' value to perform only forcefield minimization of molecules with 3D structures in input file. This doesn't work for molecules in SMILES file or molecules in SD/MOL files containing 2D structures.
Forcefield method to use for energy minimization. Possible values: Universal Force Field (UFF) [ Ref 81 ] or Merck Molecular Mechanics Force Field (MMFF) [ Ref 83-87 ] .
Enforce chirality for defined chiral centers.

Input file name.
A comma delimited list of parameter name and value pairs for reading molecules from files. The supported parameter names for different file formats, along with their default values, are shown below:
Possible values for smilesDelimiter: space, comma or tab.
Maximum number of conformations to generate for each molecule by conformation generation methodology for initial 3D coordinates. The conformations are minimized using the specified forcefield and the lowest energy conformation is written to the output file. This option is ignored during 'None' value of '-c --conformerGenerator' option.
Maximum number of iterations to perform for each molecule during forcefield minimization.
By default, input data is retrieved in a lazy manner via mp.Pool.imap() function employing lazy RDKit data iterable. This allows processing of arbitrary large data sets without any additional requirements memory.
All input data may be optionally loaded into memory by mp.Pool.map() before starting worker processes in a process pool by setting the value of 'inputDataMode' to 'InMemory' in '--mpParams' option.
A word to the wise: The default 'chunkSize' value of 1 during 'Lazy' input data mode may adversely impact the performance. The '--mpParams' section provides additional information to tune the value of 'chunkSize'.
A comma delimited list of parameter name and value pairs for to configure multiprocessing.
The supported parameter names along with their default and possible values are shown below:
These parameters are used by the following functions to configure and control the behavior of multiprocessing: mp.Pool(), mp.Pool.map(), and mp.Pool.imap().
The chunkSize determines chunks of input data passed to each worker process in a process pool by mp.Pool.map() and mp.Pool.imap() functions. The default value of chunkSize is dependent on the value of 'inputDataMode'.
The mp.Pool.map() function, invoked during 'InMemory' input data mode, automatically converts RDKit data iterable into a list, loads all data into memory, and calculates the default chunkSize using the following method as shown in its code:
For example, the default chunkSize will be 7 for a pool of 4 worker processes and 100 data items.
The mp.Pool.imap() function, invoked during 'Lazy' input data mode, employs 'lazy' RDKit data iterable to retrieve data as needed, without loading all the data into memory. Consequently, the size of input data is not known a priori. It's not possible to estimate an optimal value for the chunkSize. The default chunkSize is set to 1.
The default value for the chunkSize during 'Lazy' data mode may adversely impact the performance due to the overhead associated with exchanging small chunks of data. It is generally a good idea to explicitly set chunkSize to a larger value during 'Lazy' input data mode, based on the size of your input data and number of processes in the process pool.
The mp.Pool.map() function waits for all worker processes to process all the data and return the results. The mp.Pool.imap() function, however, returns the the results obtained from worker processes as soon as the results become available for specified chunks of data.
The order of data in the results returned by both mp.Pool.map() and mp.Pool.imap() functions always corresponds to the input data.
Output file name.
A comma delimited list of parameter name and value pairs for writing molecules to files. The supported parameter names for different file formats, along with their default values, are shown below:

Seed for the random number generator for reproducing 3D coordinates. Default is to use a random seed.
Location of working directory which defaults to the current directory.
