While building up the PADMET platform, the need for an inexpensive and uncomplicated pKa determination method became apparent. A methodology based on 1H-NMR spectroscopy was chosen for this purpose and scope and limitations of this approach were explored. An excellent correlation to reference data was achieved.
The components of the platform were used to characterize 93 carbohydrate mimetics regarding several pharmacokinetic parameters. The results were used in different projects of which two are discussed in detail in this thesis. First, one of the primary goals of the FimH antagonist project was the synthesis of orally available compounds with fast renal excretion. By the aid of various assays, molecules with a promising profile could be identified. Indeed, in vivo mouse studies confirmed the intended properties. The permeability values gathered during this project were correlated to calculated descriptors and to experimental lipophilicity values in order to identify the driving force of the permeation of carbohydrate mimetics. Calculated lipophilicity values as single descriptor proved to be superior to other descriptors and to combinations thereof.
Second, during the MAG project compounds with maintained local concentrations in the cerebrospinal fluid were envisioned. Permeation through artificial blood-brain barrier and stability in artificial cerebrospinal fluid were thus determined.
