The Art of Drug Synthesis

Description: This book illustrates how chemistry, biology, pharmacokinetics, and a host of disciplines come together to produce successful medicines. The authors have compiled a collection of 21 representative categories of drugs, from which they have selected as examples many of the bestselling drugs on the market today. An introduction to each drug is provided, as well as background to the biology, pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, and drug metabolism, followed by a detailed account of the drug synthesis. Edited by prominent scientists working in drug discovery for Pfizer, this book meets the needs of a growing community of researchers in pharmaceutical R &D, providing a useful guide for practicing pharmaceutical scientists as well as a text for medicinal chemistry students. It provides an excellent follow-up to the very successful first book by these editors, Contemporary Drug Synthesis. -Edited by prominent scientists working in drug discovery for Pfizer -Meets the needs of a growing community of researchers in pharmaceutical R&D -Provides a useful guide for practicing pharmaceutical scientists as well as a text for medicinal chemistry students -An excellent follow-up to the very successful first book by these editors, Contemporary Drug Synthesis, but with all new therapeutic categories and drugs discussed.
