This title includes a number of Open Access chapters.

The science of chemistry is so broad that it is normally broken into fields or branches of specialization. The manufacture of drugs and dyes is one of the most practical industrial applications of chemistry. This collection presents the reader with a broad spectrum of chapters on drugs and dyes, thereby demonstrating key developments in this rapidly changing field. It examines dyes in chemical interaction and production of drugs for pharmaceutical use as well as in forensic work and in the production of materials.

About the Editors

Dr. Harold H. Trimm was born in 1955 in Brooklyn, New York. Dr. Trimm is the chairman of the Chemistry Department at Broome Community College in Binghamton, New York. In addition, he is an Adjunct Analytical Professor, Binghamton University, State University of New York, Binghamton, New York.

He received his PhD in chemistry, with a minor in biology, from Clarkson University in 1981 for his work on fast reaction kinetics of biologically important molecules. He then went on to Brunel University in England for a postdoctoral research fellowship in biophysics, where he studied the molecules involved with arthritis by electroptics. He recently authored a textbook on forensic science titled Forensics the Easy Way (2005).

William Hunter Jr. graduated from Albany College of Pharmacy and has worked for more than forty years in the pharmaceutical field. He spent the first seventeen of those years in community pharmacy and the latter twenty-five working in a hospital pharmacy. In recent years, in his work at Olean General Hospital, he has had the opportunity to work with some of the most updated pharmaceutical technology, designed to improve both speed and safety in the distribution of medications, leading the hospital into the twenty-first century.
