Andrejuk, D.D. and Hernandez Santiago, A.A. and Khomich, V.V. and Voronov, V.K. and Davies, David B. and Evstigneev, M.P. (2008) Structural and thermodynamic analysis of the hetero-association of theophylline with aromatic drug molecules. Journal of Molecular Structure 889 (1-3), pp. 229-236. ISSN 0022-2860.Full text not available from this repository.
The hetero-association of theophylline (THP) with other biologically-active aromatic molecules (e.g. the anti-cancer drugs daunomycin and novantrone, the antibiotic norfloxacin, the vitamin flavin-mononucleotide and two mutagens ethidium bromide and proflavine) has been studied by NMR in aqueous-salt solution (0.1 M Na-phosphate buffer, pD 7.1). It was found that THP shows an essentially similar hetero-association ability as caffeine (CAF) towards aromatic drugs, except for novantrone (NOV), which has much less affinity to THP than CAF as a result of energetically unfavourable orthogonal orientation of the chromophores of THP and NOV in the hetero-complex.
