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
