Abstract

The model for the characterization of hydrophobicity, hydrophilicity and lipophilicity of compounds is presented. It is based on the vapour-to-solvent coefficients for hydrophilicity and lipophilicity and the partition coefficient for hydrophobicity. It is shown that some apparently contradictory facts can be understood on the basis of this model.
