Couverture de l’ouvrage Chemistry for pharmacy students: General organic & natural products chemistry
Chemistry for Pharmacy Students is a student-friendly introduction to the key areas of chemistry required by all pharmacy and pharmaceutical science students. The book provides a comprehensive overview of the various areas of general, organic and natural product chemistry (in relation to drug molecules) suitable for the undergraduate curricula in Pharmacy (Bpharm/MPharm). Clearly structured to enhance student understanding the book is divided into 6 clear sections: An overview of general aspects of chemistry and their importance to modern life, with particular emphasis on medicinal applications, The concepts of atomic structure and bonding, The fundamentals of stereochemistry and their importance in pharmacy- in relation to drug action and toxicity, Various aspects of aliphatic, aromatic and heterocyclic chemistry and their pharmaceutical importance, Organic reactions and their applications to drug discovery and development with the final chapter discussing natural product chemistry. Clearly structured with a focus on the properties and actions of drug molecules. Entire chapter devoted to natural product chemistry. Includes learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter Includes supplementary material such as PowerPoint's and case studies.
