Molecular recognition: Models for drug design

  • R. J. Breckenridge
Multi-Author Review Molecular Recognition


The review takes examples, mostly from the recent literature, to illustrate how an understanding of physico-chemical properties and an appreciation of the molecular shape and electronic properties can lead to a better insight into molecular recognition processes. The techniques used to generate 3-dimensional structures of molecules and the influence this information has had on the drug design cycle, are briefly discussed.
