Interconnection of sulfides and sulfoxides in medicinal chemistry.

Summary of "Interconnection of sulfides and sulfoxides in medicinal chemistry."

Aromatic heterocycles with basic nitrogen atoms as well as carboxylic acid derivatives are the dominating chemical space in the universe of drug-like molecules. These established and exceedingly evaluated structural motifs have to be combined with elements of diversity in order to chart less well-explored galaxies of chemical space and to be able to tackle seemingly undruggable targets. Flat scaffolds should be replaced by shapely molecular cores. In this context, it has been unheeded that phenyl rings in diaryl sulfides are less co-planar than in ethers and that the metabolic interconnection of sulfides and sulfoxides offers advantages that are unalike from the chemistry of amines and N-oxides in the CHN-O world. Moreover, σ-hole potentials increase with the polarizability of the atom N < P < O < S and do not only play a role in long-time overlooked halogen bonds. Examples for λ , λ , and λ S-based functionalities related to improved solubility, reduced drug resistance, linkers in drug conjugates, drug-targeting to parasites, and as basis for drug monitoring in sports are given and discussed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Organic chemistry methodology that mimics the modular nature of various biosynthetic processes. It uses highly reliable and selective reactions designed to "click" i.e., rapidly join small modular units together in high yield, without offensive byproducts. In combination with COMBINATORIAL CHEMISTRY TECHNIQUES, it is used for the synthesis of new compounds and combinatorial libraries.

Chemistry dealing with the composition and preparation of agents having PHARMACOLOGIC ACTIONS or diagnostic use.

Field of chemistry pertaining to the study of inorganic compounds or ions and their interactions with biological ligands at the molecular level.

The branch of chemistry dealing with detection (qualitative) and determination (quantitative) of substances. (Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed)

Organic compounds that have the general formula R-SO-R. They are obtained by oxidation of mercaptans (analogous to the ketones). (From Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 4th ed)
