Types Of Stereoisomers

When molecules composed of the same constituents have the same structural formulas but differ only with respect to the spatial arrangement of certain atoms or groups of atoms, they are defined as stereoisomers. Stereoisomers can be optical isomers or geometrical isomers. Optical isomers are members of a set of stereoisomers, at least two of which are optically active or chiral geometrical isomers are members of a set of stereoisomers that contains no optically active members. If the...

R1 CH2 CH2 CH2 CH2 NH(BSA) R2 H In the case of both warfarin and pentobarbital, the molecule has a single asymmetric center in a nonrigid position of the molecule. When one considers that, in the case of pentobarbital, an exchange of positions between a hydrogen atom and methyl group reverses the stereochemistry, the selectivity of the antibodies for such substances is impressive. If the single asymmetric center were part of a more rigid system, such as a ring, one might anticipate even...

Stereochemistry Of Cancer Drugs

In a lecture, held much later in Utrecht on May 16,1904, van't Hoff said the following Students, let me give you a recipe for making discoveries. In connexion with what has just been said about libraries, I might remark that they have always had a mind-deadening effect on me. When Wislicenus' paper on lactic add appeared and I was studying it in the Utrecht library, I therefore broke off my study half-way through, to go for a walk and it was during this walk, under the influence of the...

Receptor Binding Assays

Receptors for drug molecules generally exhibit stereoselectivity, including enantioselectivity. Thus, receptors are in many ways ideally suited for the development of enantioselective binding assays. A property of receptors that often makes them different from antibodies is the fact that receptors will tend to bind to a series of drugs in a manner correlated with their pharmacological activity. Pharmacologically active metabolites may be therefore analyzed in a receptor binding assay. Results...

Optical Rotation

Because each member of a pair of enantiomeric molecules differs from the other only in the spatial arrangement of the ligands attached to the chiral center, their physical properties, that is, melting point, boiling point, refractive index, solubility, etc., are identical. The major difference between the isomers of an enantiomeric pair was first observed by Biot in 1815 when he noted that one form of tartaric acid rotated plane-polarized light, whereas another form did not (1). Light is a form...

This antiserum had good selectivity vs. the isomeric methadols, but exhibited 12 cross-reaction with the N-desmethyl metabolite norLAMM. When norLAMM levels were twice those of LAMM, a 25 positive error was introduced. Such ratios can occur as early as 11 hr after LAMM administration (unpublished results) and may...

Resolution Of Racemates

Pasteur devised three methods to resolve paratartaric acid the first was manual, the second was chemical, and the third could be considered biological or physiological. Because paratartaric acid (also called racemic acid) was the first inactive compound to be resolved into optical isomers (enan-tiomers), an equimolar mixture of two enantiomers is now called a racemate. As indicated in the first lecture, Pasteur, using a hand lens and pair of tweezers, laboriously separated a quantity of the...

An alternative explanation would be the flexibility of rotation around the 4' O C bond compared to the rigidity of the...
