Summary
"Medicinal Chemistry, Second Edition provides a comprehensive, balanced introduction to this evolving, multi-disciplinary subject. The book carefully explains fundamental principles, assuming little in the way of prior knowledge. It opens with a broad overview of medicinal chemistry followed by chapters that cover the principal methods used in drug design and the isolation of drugs from natural sources. Subsequent chapters discuss more specialised aspects of medicinal chemistry and outline drug and analogue synthesis, development and production, Each chapter contains self-assessment questions, numerous examples and a wide variety of applications." "Medicinal Chemistry, Second Edition will prove invaluable to students of chemistry, medicinal and pharmaceutical chemistry, pharmacy and pharmacology whose courses include medicinal chemistry units."--BOOK JACKET
