Selective binding and release of aspirin by an encapsulating receptor
MetadataShow full item record
The selective binding of aspirin deep inside superbowl synthetic hosts is reported. Evidence for a two-point binding mode of the drug by the host is presented. Both the strength of aspirin binding and the rate of its release are manipulated by altering the substituents about the host’s aperture

(2017)A wide variety of drugs bind to human serum albumin (HSA) at its two principal sites, namely site I and site II. A number of reports indicate that drug binding to these two binding sites are not completely independent, ...
