  • Publisher: Wiley
  • Number Of Pages: 355
  • Publication Date: 2010-08-09
  • ISBN-10 / ASIN: 0470525835
  • ISBN-13 / EAN: 9780470525838

Product Description:

Following Contemporary Drug Synthesis and The Art of Drug Synthesis (Wiley, 2004 and 2007), two well-received works, is this new book that demystifies the process of modern drug discovery for practitioners and students. An enhanced introduction covers areas such as background, pharmacology, SAR, PK/PD, efficacy, and safety. Focusing on the advantages of process synthesis versus the discovery synthetic route, Modern Drug Synthesis features authoritative coverage by distinguished editors and authors (some chapter authors are the actual inventor of the drug) of twenty different drug molecules.

The all–inclusive book on the cutting–edge science driving the medicinal chemistry of the latest drugs

The successor to the editors′ two highly acclaimed works on drug synthesis, Contemporary Drug Synthesis and The Art of Drug Synthesis, this book provides refocused and extensive new coverage detailing how chemistry, biology, and pharmacokinetics integrate to spearhead successful medical findings. Modern Drug Synthesis carries on the mission of delivering the most up–to–date developments unfolding in this rapidly evolving field by placing a stronger emphasis on medicinal chemistry and pharmacology, in addition to drug synthesis. Other highlights include:

  • Chapters are logically divided into categories such as background of disease area, pharmacology, SAR (structure–activity relationships), pharmacokinetics and drug metabolism, efficacy and safety, and synthesis

  • Expert analysis of the pros and cons of different synthetic routes

  • A step–by–step breakdown of today′s drug discovery process for professionals and students

  • Supporting case studies in each chapter

Modern Drug Synthesis shows that whether drug synthesis is in early development or the process stage, the ability to design elegant and economical synthetic routes is often a major factor making a drug a commercial winner. Easy to follow and stacked with valuable information on the present and future direction of medicinal chemistry, Modern Drug Synthesis is the one guide that paints a clear and complete picture of this complex subject.




Cleaning Validation Manual: A Comprehensive Guide for the Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Industries

Cleaning Validation Manual: A Comprehensive Guide for the Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Industries.
By Syed Imtiaz Haider, Erfan Syed Asif
  • Publisher: CRC Press
  • Number Of Pages: 608
  • Publication Date: 2010-05-24
  • ISBN-10 / ASIN: 1439826609
  • ISBN-13 / EAN: 9781439826607

Product Description:

During the past decades, enormous progress and enhancement of pharmaceutical manufacturing equipment and its use have been made. And while there are support documents, books, articles, and online resources available on the principles of cleaning and associated processing techniques, none of them provides a single database with convenient, ready-to-use training tools. Until now. Cleaning Validation Manual: A Comprehensive Guide for the Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Industries elucidates how to train the man power involved in development, manufacturing, auditing, and validation of bio pharmaceuticals on a pilot scale, leading to scale-up production.

With over 20 easy-to-use template protocols for cleaning validation of extensively used equipments, this book provides technical solutions to assist in fulfilling the training needs of finished pharmaceutical manufacturers. Drawing on the authors’ more than two decades of experience in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries, the text offers hands-on training based on current approaches and techniques. The book does not merely provide guidelines or thought processes, rather it gives ready-to-use formulas to develop Master Plan, SOPs, and validation protocols. It includes cleaning procedures for the most commonly used equipment in various manufacturing areas and their sampling points, using a pharmaceutical manufacturing site with both sterile and non-sterile operations as the case facility. It also provides the training guidelines on a CD-ROM to enable users to amend or adopt them as necessary.

Grounded in practicality, the book’s applicability and accessibility set it apart. It can be used as a guide for implementing a cleaning validation program on site without the help of external consultants, making it a resource that will not be found collecting dust on a shelf, but rather, referred to again and again.

A Comprehensive Dictionary of Inorganic Chemistry

A Comprehensive Dictionary of Inorganic Chemistry.

by Carmen Warren

ISBN: 81-8247-050-1

The subject of inorganic chemistry deals with chemical compounds that do not contain hydrocarbon radicals. It is the specialised branch of chemistry and is the complex one. This makes it a tremendous task, to present the dictionary in such a way that it is well received by the community who are very much concerned with the subject. This dictionary is infact, is formulated in such a way that everybody, either s/he is a student, a teacher or a researcher. This dictionary contains .more than 2000 well researched,,exhaustively and are precisely explained.The descriptions are described in the simplest of the language. Many of the terms in
the dictionary are also supplemented with the visual representations. These visual representations help the readers to grasp the point behind the definitions very easily and without any fuss. These visual representations provide supplementary knowledge to the readers rather than emphasising what already is given in the text. This different methodology will certainly help the readers of this dictionary to get an edge over others who are pursuing differentpaths.

All in all with so much of hard work being involved in the formulation of this book, we hope that this venture will certainly find it's niche in the reader's mind and reader will find it their best companion in their quest of exploring the field of Inorganic Chemistry.





Organic Name Reactions

Organic Name Reactions.

  • ISBN-13 / EAN: 9788189473327


Organic chemistry encompasses a very large number of comp'ounds possessing numerous structure types and characteristics. The structural features and characteristics undergo changes during many complex chemical reactions.These reactions allow the syntheSis and inter-conversion of millions of compounds. These chemical reactions involving organic cOJ:npounds are known as name reactions. Addition reactions, elimination reactions, substitution reactions,pericyclic reactions, rearrangement reactions and redox reactions are some of the important name reactions haVing vast utility in many fields.The present book explains how covalent bonds break and form including the processes involved at the outset. The book describes the types of name reactions mentioned above along with their basis and mechanism. Looking to the vast utility of name reactions in the construction of new organic molecules, man-made chemicals, plastics, food additives,fabrics, etc., the book makes sensible suggestions about mechanism and provides step-by-step knowledge on production of intermediates and final compounds. This schematic and picturesque presentation on name reactions will be highly beneficial to students, teachers, chemists and general readers.
