Posted by trigger on Thursday, January 29, 2009 at 9:01am.

Compound B is acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter found in the human body. It binds to receptors, leading to nerve stimulation. (in case this post does not show correct, two of the CH3 should be above and below the N^+ , AND THE O should be above the C)

COMPOUND B


CH3 O
| |
H3C- N+- CH2- CH2- O-C- CH3
|
CH3

(i)
Name two types of interaction, other than van der Waals or hydrophobic interactions, by which compound B could bind to the receptors.
(ii)
Identify two different types of group or atoms that could be involved in each of the interactions described in part (c)(i).

(iii) Give examples of the types of functional groups which will have to be present in the receptor sites in order for the two types of binding interaction to take place.
