Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The association constants for the interactions of 2-hydroxy-4-methoxyacetophenone, 2-hydroxy-5-methoxyacetophenone, 2-hydroxy-6-methoxyacetophenone, 3-hydroxy-4-methoxyacetophenone and 4-hydroxy-3-methoxyacetophenone with β-cyclodextrin in water were measured by (1)H NMR and by isothermal titration calorimetry. Very good agreement was obtained between the different methods. The errors associated with the NMR method for measuring mM binding affinities were estimated to be 10-30%, and by isothermal titration calorimetry, 10-20%. Rotating frame nuclear Overhauser effect spectroscopy studies show that the solution phase host-guest complexes formed by β-cyclodextrin with these hydroxymethoxyacetophenone derivatives are not structurally well defined but that the hydroxymethoxyacetophenone derivatives are mostly associated with the narrow primary hydroxyl rim.
