A segment contribution activity coefficient model, derived from the polymer nonrandom two-liquid model, is proposed for fast, qualitative estimation of the solubilities of organic nonelectrolytes in common solvents. Conceptually, the approach suggests that one account for the liquid nonideality of mixtures of complex pharmaceutical molecules and small solvent molecules in terms of interactions between three pairwise interacting conceptual segments: hydrophobic segment, hydrophilic segment, and polar segment. In practice, these conceptual segments become the molecular descriptors used to represent the molecular surface characteristics of each solute and solvent molecule. The treatment results in component-specific molecular parameters: hydrophobicity X, polarity Y, and hydrophilicity Z. Once the molecular parameters are identified from experimental data for common solvents and solute molecules, the model offers a simple and practical thermodynamic framework to estimate solubilities and to perform other phase equilibrium calculations in support of pharmaceutical process design.
