Since it is virtually impossible to determine log P in a realistic biological medium, the octanolwater system has been widely adopted as a model of the lipid phase (Leo et al. 1971). , Dearden and Bresnen 1988), it is the most widely used in pharmaceutical studies. Octanol and water are immiscible, but some water does dissolve in octanol in a hydrated state. This hydrated state contains 16 octanol aggregates, with the hydroxyl head groups surrounded by trapped aqueous solution. Lipophilic (unionized) species dissolve in the aliphatic regions of the octanol, whilst ionized species (see below) are drawn to the polar regions (Franks et al.

A typical oxidation sequence is that shown by dopamine (Myers and Jenke 1993). To test whether a compound is sensitive to oxygen, simply bubble air through the solution, or add hydrogen peroxide, and assess the amount of degradation that takes place. Racemization Although hydrolysis and oxidation constitute the main mechanisms by which drugs can decompose, racemization is another way in which the compound can change in solution. For example, Fyhr and Högström (1988) investigated the racemization of ropivacaine hydrochloride.
