Abstract
The polarizability and the transition state energy of a cephalosporin are assumed to be theoretical indices of the permeability through the outer membrane and of reactivity of β-lactam ring with penicillin binding proteins, respectively, in Gram-negative bacteria. They are computed by AM1 method and used as variables of quantitative structure-activity relationship study. The results justify quadratic dependence of the activity on the variables. The intersection of difference volumes between β-lactamase stable cephalosporins and unstable ones manifests that the steric hindrance of 7-side chain is responsible for the β-lactamase stability.
