Fluid motion of lipid bilayer opens gaps through which small molecules can move. Hydration of small molecules increases effective size of molecule. Ionized molecules order water to a greater degree and are effectively larger and therefore permeate lipid bilayers less readily. In case study #2, we want to promote excretion, not reabsorption. Increase ionization of molecule. Case Study #2 The Kidney OO C OCH H O C C3 3 OH COOH pKa ~ 4 PMS and AM of methyl salicylate before and after alkalinizat...
