Medicinal Chemistry and Creation: A Preliminary Model

Book Announcement

Bentham Science Publishers

The book “Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Production: An Introductory Textbook” mainly focused on the preliminary knowledge of a small molecule as drug, its use, synthesis and mode faction and production of commercials like ethanol, citric acid, antibiotics, amino acid and vitamins.

The text is written mainly for the UG-level of study of all Indian University for newly implemented CBCS curriculum in a softly manner. PG-course structure of some of the Indian university had also been followed while writing this book. I sincerely hope that this book will serve the purpose of text book of all UG-level students and Teachers in India. The text is covered mainly on the purpose of use of a particular drug, mode of action of the drug in the living system and their available synthesis. In other part, the text is covered mainly on the microbial production. The microbial productions directly or indirectly are of economic, environmental and social importance throughout the world. This will help to understand for better findings.

The text introduces students to the key types of pharmaceuticals and chemicals that are used in routine pharmacy and medical practice. These include common antibacterials, antimalarials, antifungals, analgesics, CNS agents, and antivirals. This information is complemented by a section that covers the production of common ingredients and pharmaceuticals (such as ethanol, citric acid, antibiotics and vitamins). Additional chapters covering the fundamentals of drug design and retrosynthetic analysis of common pharmaceuticals round up the text into a concise resource for learners.
