Pharmaceutical Chemistry (Bilingual) D.Pharm 1st Year Text Book

Availability: In stock


Pharmaceutical (Medicinal) chemistry is concerned with the design (drug design) and synthesis of biologically active molecules. The aim is to gain new chemical molecules that could enable the discovery of new pharmaceuticals or optimize already known drug structures, thereby to expand the portfolio of chemical drugs. Although organic chemistry plays a crucial role, only knowledgeable pharmaceutical chemists are able to work effectively in a highly interdisciplinary environment and interact with scientists in other disciplines, such as molecular biology, structural biology, pharmacology, physical chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacokinetics, pharmaceutical technology, toxicology or with experts from the field of translational medicine, etc. This book is written with very easy language in English as well as Hindi. The textbook second part includes practical exercises where a student could apply his or her theoretical concepts to real practical situations.
