The Organic Chemistry of Drug Design and Drug Action, Second Edition

  • The Organic Chemistry of Drug Design and Drug Action, Second Edition
    By Richard B. Silverman Ph.D Organic Chemistry

    • Publisher: Academic Press
    • Number Of Pages: 617
    • Publication Date: 2004-01-26
    • ISBN-10 / ASIN: 0126437327
    • ISBN-13 / EAN: 9780126437324

    Product Description:

    Standard medicinal chemistry courses and texts are organized by classes of drugs with an emphasis on descriptions of their biological and pharmacological effects. This book represents a new approach based on physical organic chemical principles and reaction mechanisms that rationalize drug action and allow the reader to extrapolate to many related classes of drug molecules. The Second Edition reflects the significant changes in the drug industry over the past decade, and now includes color illustrations, chapter problems, and other elements that make concepts easier to understand.

    * Organic chemist's perspective of how drugs are designed and function
    * Teaches organic chemists and biochemists the fundamentals of drug design and drug action using drugs as examples
    * Extensive use of references to the primary and secondary literature for more in depth reading about all concepts
    * Extensive use of structures, schemes, and figures to illustrate points
    * Explanations of dual-acting drugs
    * Problem sets and answers for each topic
    * Casual writing style
    * Author has published over 200 articles in the areas of synthesis, bioorganic chemistry, and medicinal chemistry, has been awarded 21 patents, and has invented a drug that is under consideration for commercialization.

Ion-Pair Chromatography and Related Techniques (Analytical Chemistry) By Teresa Cecchi

Ion-Pair Chromatography and Related Techniques (Analytical Chemistry)
By Teresa Cecchi.
  • Publisher: CRC
  • Number Of Pages: 215
  • Publication Date: 2009-10-15
  • ISBN-10 / ASIN: 1439800960
  • ISBN-13 / EAN: 9781439800966
Product Description:

Ion-Pair Chromatography (IPC) is a rapidly evolving method for difficult analyses of organic and inorganic ions and ionogenic, neutral, and zwitterionic compounds. The possibilities for this technology continue to grow as novel ion-pair reagents and strategies are introduced at an accelerated level. Compensating for a dearth in the literature, Ion-Pair Chromatography and Related Techniques details the basics and the evolution of this established and easily tunable technique and explains its influence on similar methods.

Theoretical modeling to application

Providing a thorough exploration of the multiplicity of interactions involved in an IPC system, this book emphasizes the progress from theoretical modeling to application. It explores the practical potential of IPC in the life science, medicine, pharmacology, forensic, food, and environmental sectors. It examines the upgrade of column technology and instrumentation to improve data quality and to increase sample throughput. The book also compares IPC to other instrumental methods of analysis and discusses the rising importance of the ion-pair concept in different analytical techniques.

Future endeavors

IPC has the potential to have lasting impact in the field of chromatography. Distilling the knowledge gained from preeminent research, this volume is a critical resource that is destined to stimulate future endeavors by separation scientists working in the area of high performance liquid chromatography.
