Is there a computationally-accessible metric of "reactivity" in the medicinal-chemistry sense?

Occasionally a med-chemist will remark that they think a particular molecule has a 'reactive centre' and so should be de-prioritised (in the context of hit- and drug- discovery). Leaving aside known ...

How reactivity of a organic molecule depends upon HOMO and LUMO

I am studying the dehydrogenation of an organic molecule. I see the HUMO-LUMO gap remains nearly the same for many dehydrogenated steps (for some steps, it is exactly the same) while the position of ...
