How are they interconnected (explain the underlying concept!)? Vd = volume of distribution; t1/2= half-life. Typically, drugs with a large Vd are highly protein bound, and their metabolism/excretion is therefore attenuated. Consequently, drugs with a large Vd have usually a longer half-life than drugs with small Vd.
