from .reaction_result import ReactionResult
An abstract base class for reactions.
Reactions are used to add and remove atoms and bonds during
:class:`.ConstructedMolecule` construction. Each subclass
will implement a specific algorithm for doing this. Each
:class:`.Reaction` instance should operate on a small set of
directly relevant :class:`.FunctionalGroup` instances, and only
modify the atoms and bonds of those instances. Normally, like 99%
of the time, this should just be two functional groups, and you
should ensure your topology graph only needs to react two
functional groups at a time, if you can. However, :mod:`stk` does
not actually care, and you can modify as many atoms and bonds as
you want in any reaction.
Used for automated creation of :class:`.Reaction` instances.
Typically, :class:`.Reaction` instances are not created
directly, but only through some kind of
You might notice that the public method of this abstract
base class, :meth:`.get_result`, is implemented. This is purely for
convenience when implementing subclasses. The implemented public
method is simply a default implementation, which can be safely
ignored or overridden, when implementing subclasses. The private
methods are an implementation detail of this default
implementation. However, they are not implemented. To use the
default implementation of :meth:`.get_result`, the private methods
it relies on need to be implemented.
The source code of the subclasses, listed in
:mod:`~.reaction.reaction`, can serve as good examples.
[docs] def get_result(self):
Get the result of carrying out the reaction.
Holds the results of the reaction.
Yield the atoms added by the reaction.
A :class:`tuple` of the form ``(atom, position)``, holding
an :class:`.Atom` added
by the reaction and its position as a
:class:`numpy.ndarray`. New atoms have a negative id, and
will need to be assigned a new one when added to the
Yield the bonds added by the reaction.
A bond added by the reaction.
Yield the atoms removed by the reaction.
An atom deleted by the reaction.
Yield the bonds removed by the reaction between existing atoms.
An bond deleted by the reaction.
