Recently, different authors have reported Perturbation Theory (PT) methods combined with machine learning (ML) to obtain PTML (PT + ML) models. They have applied PTML models to the study of different biological systems. Here we present one state-of-art review about the different applications of PTML models in Organic Synthesis, Medicinal Chemistry, Protein Research, and Technology. The aim of the models is to find relations between the molecular descriptors and the biological characteristics to predict key properties of new compounds. An area where the ML has been very useful is the drug discovery process. The entire process of drug discovery leads to the generation of lots of data, and it is also a costly and time-consuming process. ML comes with the opportunity of analyzing significant amounts of chemical data obtaining outcomes to find potential drug candidates.
