Absorption and Drug Development: Solubility, Permeability by Alex Avdeef

By Alex Avdeef

Of the masses of millions of compounds synthesized every year, such a lot have nearly no likelihood of changing into medications. This challenge exists simply because so much molecules lack the drug-like houses essential to permit them to be powerful in vivo. to handle this factor, Alex Avdeef's Absorption and Drug improvement exhibits the reader how you can study a compound's pharmaceutical homes, emphasizing oral absorption. This ebook explains different physicochemical equipment presently used to research drug applicants and the way to interpret those tools. additionally integrated are physicochemical info for over two hundred advertisement medicinal drugs. With over six hundred references and a hundred drawings, this publication is a superb source for the sensible pharmaceutical chemist and people looking a greater knowing of physicochemical measurements.

The permeability and the concentration of the uncharged species are denoted P0 and C0 , respectively. , Curr. Topics Med. , 1, 277–351 (2001). ] PROPERTIES OF THE GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT (GIT) 11 which case it is equal to the solubility. Since the uncharged molecular species is the permeant, Eq. 4) may be restated as J ¼ P0 C0 P0 S 0 ð2:5Þ where P0 and C0 are the intrinsic permeability and concentration of the uncharged species, respectively. The intrinsic permeability does not depend on pH, but its cofactor in the flux equation C0 does.

15 M (fixed by KCl). 15 M (NaCl) [150]. 15 M (NaCl) [151]. All equilibrium constants in the present discussion are based on the concentration (not activity) scale. This is a perfectly fine thermodynamic scale, provided the ionic strength of the solvent medium is kept fixed at a ‘‘reference’’ level ( and therefore sufficiently higher than the concentration of the species assayed). This is known as the ‘‘constant ionic medium’’ thermodynamic state. 15 M KCl or NaCl, the physiological level, because of standardization in the available commercial instruments.
