(1) (35 points total) Shown below is posaconazole, an antifungal drug that was approved by the FDA in September, 2006. Chem 130A, Winter 2007, Practice Final _______________________________ name (a) (5 points) Please label all good hydrogen-bond acceptors in posaconazole. (b) (5 points) Please label all good hydrogen-bond donors in posaconazole. (c) (5 points) Please point out a region of posaconazole that is hydrophobic. (d) (10 points) Please suggest a modification to posaconazole that will improve the ability of its difluorobenzene ring to participate in cation• ! interactions. Explain your reasoning a n d discuss the potential problems associated with making such a change.
