    Lidocaine is thought to bind to receptors in its methylated form.
    identify in writting the atoms or groups in the compound that could be involved in its binding to a receptor via- hydrogen bonding (1 example)
    an ionic interaction

    give the 2 types of functional groups that need to be present in the receptor sites in order for these forms of binding to take place.

    To answer this question, we need to talk about different types of relatively weak intermolecular interactions. There are Van der Waals type interactions which are quite weak, hydrogen bonding which are much stronger and ionic interactions. Van der Waals interactions occur in every molecule, ...

    Solution Summary

    The bonding between lidocaine and its receptor is investivagted, such as the functional group.
