One out of every three Americans is diagnosed with metabolic syndrome. Such treatment could be improved upon through research, more specifically, when it comes to the solubility of medications. For this research, two new molecular systems were studied. We looked at whether a molecule was more soluble independently or in a combined system. Quantum mechanic calculations, optimizations, and analysis were techniques used to determine this. Lipophilicity was also a factor analyzed in our experiment.
