Determination of Acidic Dissociation Constants of Chlorthalidone and Terbutaline in Water Using DFT and Ab Initio Methods

DFT ve Başlangıç Yöntemlerini Kullanılarak Klortalidon ve Terbütalinin Asidik Ayrışma Sabitlerinin Belirlenmesi

In the present study, pKa values of both drug called Chlorthalidone and Terbutaline were determined in aqueous solution. For this purpose, the B3LYP calculation with the 6-31+G(d) basis set was utilized. The reactions and equilibria that possess a high hydrogen-band-donor capability and constitute the indispensable theoretical basis to calculate the acidity constants of Chlorthalidone and Terbutaline, are shown. To analyze the formation of intermolecular hydrogen bonds between the existent species and water molecules, Tomasi’s method was used. In this way, it was determined that in alkaline aqueous solutions the cation, anion, and neutral species of Chlorthalidone and Terbutaline are solvated with one, two, three, and four molecules of water, respectively. To proceed, the calculated pKa were compared with the experimental values, which there is comparable agreement between them. The resulting data illustrated that the method was likely to be useful for the prediction of pKa values in aqueous solution.
