This book represents an effort to express a long overdue need of
compiling information which has been accumulated over the course of
more than 30 years of our work in the area of the synthesis of
medicinal drugs. Our effort fills obvious gaps that exist in the
literature of drug synthesis.
The synthesis of various groups of drugs are presented in an order
similar to that traditionally presented in a pharmacology
curriculum. This was done with a very specific goal in mind to
harmonize the chemical aspects with the pharmacology curriculum in
a manner useful to chemists.
Practically every chapter begins with an accepted brief definition
and description of a particular group of drugs, proposes their
classification, and briefly explains the present model of their
action. This is followed by a detailed description of methods for
Of the thousands of drugs existing on the pharmaceutical market, we
mainly discuss generic drugs that are included in the WHOs
Essential List of Drugs.
For practically all of the 700+ drugs described in the book,
references (around 2350) to the methods of their synthesis are
given along with the most widespread synonyms.
This book will provide the kind of information that will be of
interest to those who work, or plan to begin work in the
captivating areas of biologically active compounds and the
synthesis of medicinal drugs.
