The Topology of Molecule and Its Lipophilicity
Vijay K. Agrawal,
Padmakar V. Khadikar.
This review describes topology of the molecule and lipophilicity in that several examples of topological estimation of lipophilicity of the molecule are discussed critically. In doing so, the earlier non-topology methods used to estimate lipophilicity was first discussed critically. Usually, lipophilicity is referred to as partition of organic compound between octanol-water systems, however, some other solvent-systems were also examined topologically. All the proposed models were confirmed by variety of statistical analyses.
Keywords: Lipophilicity, hydrophobicity, topology, topological index, regression analysis, organic-water solubility, curvilinear analysis
