  1. 1.

    The geometric structure and thermochemistry of linear and branched saturated acyclic hydrocarbons are accurately described with the aid of molecular mechanics in the MM/2 parametrization, while the semiempirical quantum-chemical methods are less effective.

  2. 2.

    For the calculation of the electronic structure of saturated acyclic hydrocarbons it is most expedient to use semiempirical quantum-chemical methods with the values of the geometric parameters optimized in the framework of the MM/2 method.
