Quantitative structure-property relationship is an important theoretical basis for the design and development of solvent molecules. The establishment of an accurate and reliable prediction model can effectively solve the problems of limited property database resources, large human and material resources consumption and dangerousness in the experimental process. With the rapid development of artificial intelligence technology, deep learning has made some breakthroughs in chemical industry. In this context, this work reviews the research theories and methods of classical and intelligent modeling, and introduces some advances of deep learning in intelligent modeling on large-scale data. In addition, the advantages and application prospects of deep learning techniques in the prediction of various basic physical properties as well as potential impacts on environment, health and safety of organics are elaborated. From the angle of the intelligent development of green solvents, the prospects of theoretical and application researches on quantitative structure-property relationship based on deep learning are outlined in the development of chemical product and process.
