The Practice of Medicinal Chemistry Book Excerpt:

This book collects in one single volume, the practical aspects of Medicinal Chemistry, seen from a chemical point of view, including the wealth of information which chemists accumulate over a career, but generally is never organized and presented in a coherent form in print. Emphasis is given to how medicinal chemists conduct their search for, and design of, new drug entities. In contrast to other books on the market, it focuses on the chemistry, rather than pharmacological concepts or description of the various therapeutic classes of drugs. It should become a standard reference on the tools available to medicinal chemists when designing new drugs. Key Features * These aspects are covered by: * Specific chapters devoted to the discovery of new lead compounds, including combinatorial chemistry * Clearly written chapters on modern topics such as stereochemical aspects of drug action, the use of X-ray structures of receptors and enzymes in drug discovery, and the contribution of molecular biology to drug discovery * Guidelines and operational strategems allowing identification of the portions of the molecule which are important for potency * The particular emphasis given to the three-dimensional aspects of the drug-receptor interactions, to the design of peptidomimetic drugs and to the control of the agonist-antagonist transition * Chemical solutions to solubility and to formulation problems These sections cover perhaps the most neglected areas in medicinal chemistry books * Development of new drugs: legal and economic aspects, constitutes another important area in which chemists are almost wholly self taught following their entry into industry

Medicinal Chemistry Book Excerpt:

Medicinal chemistry is the chemistry discipline concerned with the design, development and synthesis of pharmaceutical drugs. The discipline combines expertise from chemistry and pharmacology to identify, develop and synthesize chemical agents that have a therapeutic use and to evaluate the properties of existing drugs. Medicinal Chemistry is a comprehensive and well illustrated presentation of the major areas of pharmaceutical drug research. It will be extremely useful as a textbook for pharmacy students and as an overview for research scientists entering the pharmaceutical industry. The book integrates the chemical and pharmacological aspects of drugs, and links the sciences of organic chemistry, biochemistry, and biology with the clinical areas of required for a thorough understanding of modern medicinal drugs. The treatment of pain and disease is one of the most important goals of humankind. Since ancient times people have been using potions, natural products and even the dust of mummies for the treatment of health problems. The healing effects of remedies were often ascribed to spirits and mythical entities, but some of the herbal preparations did possess curative properties. In the 1800's scientists began to investigate potions to determine what chemicals were present that could cause the observed healing. Thus, the early days of medicinal chemistry began with the study of naturally occurring materials that were effective in treating human disorders. The studies were tedious and required much sample purification and structure determination at a time when instrumental methods of analysis were unavailable. Also, screening methods for chemical efficacy against disease had to be developed so that humans were not used as trials. The book builds on the history of drug development, but does not assume much background knowledge. The focus is on building upon the understandings of the molecular function of drugs, and from there, taking a broad overview of the topical issues and most frequently used techniques.

Physical Chemistry Book Excerpt:

Physical chemistry is the branch of chemistry that is concerned with the application of physics to chemical systems. This may involve the application of the principles of thermodynamics, quantum mechanics, quantum chemistry, statistical mechanics and kinetics to the study of chemistry. Physical chemistry, in contrast to chemical physics, is predominantly (but not always) a macroscopic or supra-molecular science, as the majority of the principles on which physical chemistry was founded, are concepts related to the bulk rather than on molecular/atomic structure alone. Physical chemistry is the study of how matter behaves on a molecular and atomic level and how chemical reactions occur. Based on their analyses, physical chemists may develop new theories, such as how complex structures are formed. Physical chemists often work closely with materials scientists to research and develop potential uses for new materials. Nuclear chemistry is the subfield of general chemistry dealing with nuclear processes, radioactivity and nuclear properties of atoms. It deals with the composition of nuclear forces, nuclear reactions and radioactive materials. Nuclear chemistry bases the formation of artificial radioactivity. It is the chemistry of radioactive elements such as the radium, actinides and radon together with the chemistry associated with equipments such as nuclear reactors which are specially designed to perform nuclear processes. This book offers arresting illustrations that set it apart from others of its kind. The author focuses on core topics of physical chemistry, presented within a modern framework of applications.
