A database study of 34 770 accurate organic crystal structures reveals that the most important factor determining a higher frequency of hydrates is the sum of the average donor and acceptor counts for the functional groups. Different parameter forms for donor/acceptor properties were investigated for correlation with formation of hydrates, and are discussed. We did not find that the donor/acceptor ratio or the molecular weight significantly affects the hydrate formation. We also examined a wide range of calculated molecular properties and found that increasing polar surface is correlated with increasing hydrate formation. The water environment pattern of donor and acceptor hydrogen bonds in the crystal is influenced by the donor/acceptor ratio of the molecule.
