Instant Notes in Medicinal Chemistry provides concise coverage for undergraduates studying medicinal chemistry as part of a science, pharmacy or medical course. It is a truly multidisciplinary subject involving such subject specialities as organic chemistry, pharmacology, biochemistry, physiology, microbiology, toxicology, genetics and computer modeling. It concentrates on the fundamental principles of medicinal chemistry and assumes no more than elementary background of chemistry or biology.


'With its modest price and easily followed format, this book is clearly useful for teaching undergraduates … I believe that this book should [also] be required reading for any new employee with a scientific role at a pharmaceutical company.' - Clinical Chemistry
