Wilson and Gisvold’s text book of Organic Medicinal and Pharmaceutical

Medicinal Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Chemistry –

Medicinal chemistry deal with the discovery, design, development and both pharmacological and analytical characterisation of drug substance medicinal chemists are indispensable in the preclinical stage of drug development.

Pharmaceutical chemistry involves cures and remedies for disease, analytical techniques, pharmacology, metabolism, quality assurance, and drug chemistry. Many pharmaceutical chemistry students will later work in a lab.

Pharmaceutical chemistry leads to careers in drug development, biotechnology, pharmaceutical companies, research facilities, and more.

Overview :

Medicinal chemists apply their chemistry training to the process of synthesizing new pharmaceuticals.
Medicinal chemists are focused on drug discovery and development and are concerned with the isolation of medical agent found in plants as well as creation of new synthetic drug compounds.

Most chemists work with team of scientist from different discipline, including biologists, toxicologists, pharamacologists, and Microbiologists.

Book Suitable for pharmacy Students

For over half a century
Wilson and Gisvold’s Textbook of organic medicinal and pharmaceutical chemistry has served the discipline of medicinal chemistry for both graduate and undergraduate pharmacy and chemistry students as well as practicing pharmacists.

Fully update for twelfth edition, the book begins with the fundamental principles of chemistry, biochemistry and biology that underlie the discipline of medicinal chemistry.

These principal are then applied to understanding the properties, mode of action, therapeutic application and limitation of various pharmaceutical agents.

The subject matter is organised by pharmaceutical and therapeutic classes.
Providing a bridges between the basic science and clinical practice.. the text contains many tables for quick reference to name, formulation, dosage and applications. This edition includes chapter review question and cases.
