Abstract:
The pI₅₀ index and separation coefficients of chosen 3-N,N-diethylaminophenyl-N′,N′-dialkylcarbamates were determined. Index pI₅₀ (pI₅₀ = negative logarithm of molar concentration of inhibitor inhibiting the enzyme activity by 50%) describes the effectiveness of the inhibitor. The rate of ability of the inhibitor to pass the blood-brain barrier is usually described by the separation coefficient in a system n-octanol/water (Kₒw). Obtained results were compared with pI₅₀ and Kₒw of Exelon®, the commercially used drug against the Alzheimer’s disease.
