Solute Descriptors of Dimeric Carboxylic Acid
Abstract: 
We will be calculating the solute descriptors of carboxylic acid. We will do this by taking the solubility of carboxylic acid in binary alkane mixtures. Once the solute descriptors are calculated they will be used to estimate the toxicity and permeability of drug molecules in biological systems of carboxylic acid
