The Little Book of Perfumes: The 100 classics by Luca Turin, Tania Sanchez

By Luca Turin, Tania Sanchez

In Perfumes, Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez reviewed approximately 1,500 fragrances of their witty, irreverent and cutting edge guide - isolating the divine from the nice from the monumentally awful.

Here within the Little e-book of Perfumes the authors decide on their a hundred maximum fragrances of all time. a few are very well-known, a few rarely identified, for girls and men.

There is Jicky (1889), unisex coeval of the Eiffel Tower and 'a towering masterpiece'; Chanel's No. five (1921), possibly the world's most famed body spray, 'stretching deliciously like a sleepy panther'; Knize Ten which 'everyone may still personal simply because there's just one like it' and White Linen (1978), 'a canonical expression of the yank perfect of intercourse appeal'.

The work described by Deadman et al. [100] considered a subset of the above set of thrombin inhibitors. A training set of 16 homologous nonpeptide inhibitors whose conformations had been generated in continuum solvent (MacroModel) and clustered into conformational families (XCluster) was regressed against this pharmacophore so as to obtain a 3D-QSAR mode. QSAR and Molecular Modeling Studies 35 The structure-based pharmacophore was built using the crystallographic coordinates of argatroban complexed with thrombin [101] and the functional group definitions contained within the CATALYST software to predict the effects on the Ki values of structural modification of a set of homologous 4-aminopyridine (4-AP) thrombin inhibitors.

On the contrary, no role for the nature of the alicylic ring (five- or six-membered) was shown. Phenylalanine Derivatives Using the 3-amidino-phenylalanine templates as a key building block, Stürzebecher et al. [54, 85] synthesized some novel inhibitors of FXa (25) and evaluated their biological activity. For these compounds, Eq. 15 was formulated [72], in which MR-R1 is the molar refractivity of the substituent R1. Indicator variable IRAM indicates the existence of an amidine group, whereas I-R2 N is an indicator variable for the compounds where a bond between carbonyl group and N exists in substituent R2 .

The CoMFA model generated using steric and electrostatic fields for FXa inhibition exhibited better statistical significance than the CoMFA models generated using ClogP as an additional descriptor. The nature of the substituent at C-6 position (Fig. 5) was the crucial factor in determining the selectivity trends of various serine protease inhibitors. The researchers observed that optimum low electron density substituent at C-6 may enhance the FXa activity. Replacement of C-6 proton with a halogen (chloro) markedly Fig.
