Scat·chard plot

1. a graphic representation used in the analysis of binding phenomena in which the concentration of bound ligand divided by the concentration of free ligand is plotted against the concentration of bound ligand;
2. similar to (1), except the concentration of the bound ligand is on the vertical axis.

Figure 4b shows that the Scatchard plots were only a single straight line, which illustrated that there was only a class of binding sites populated in the nonimprinted microspheres.
But although Scatchard plots show that cadmium's affinity for the receptor is quite high (dissociation constant is [10.
Individual values of affinity and the coefficient of correlation for linearity of the Scatchard plots are shown in Table 1.
