Standard medicinal chemistry courses and texts are organized by classes of drugs with an emphasis on descriptions of their biological and pharmacological effects. This book represents a new approach based on physical organic chemical principles and reaction mechanisms that allow the reader to extrapolate to many related classes of drug molecules. The Second Edition reflects the significant changes in the drug industry over the past decade, and includes chapter problems and other elements that make the book more useful for course instruction.
* New edition includes new chapter problems and exercises to help students learn, plus extensive references and illustrations
* Clearly presents an organic chemist’s perspective of how drugs are designed and function, incorporating the extensive changes in the drug industry over the past ten years
* Well-respected author has published over 200 articles, earned 21 patents, and invented a drug that is under consideration for commercialization
Audience: Advanced undergraduate and graduate students in organic-bioorganic and medicinal chemistry. Synthetic organic chemists. Practicing chemists in these fields working in the area of drug discovery and development.
