In this work, covalent hydration energies for a variety of azanaphthalenes and purine analogs have been calculated using a variety of quantum chemical methods. On the basis of these results, we recommend the CPCM(UA0)-B3LYP/6- 31+G(d,p) level for rapid prediction of covalent hydration energies. However, we caution the use of this methodology for computing covalent hydration energies for fluorine-containing compounds.
