Description

Written by an author with more than 40 years of teaching experience in the field, Experiments in Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Second Edition responds to a critical classroom need for material on directed laboratory investigations in biological and pharmaceutical chemistry. This new edition supplies 75 experiments, expanding the range of topics to 22 major areas of pharmaceutical chemistry. These include biochemical groups, botanical classes important to pharmacy, and major drug classifications:

  • Carbohydrates
  • Lipids
  • Proteins
  • Enzymes
  • Inorganics
  • Vitamins
  • Steroids
  • Plant Acids
  • Flavonoids
  • Alkaloids
  • Tannins
  • Resins
  • Glycosides
  • Gums
  • Balsams
  • Volatile Oils
  • Analgesics
  • Anesthetics
  • Sulfa Drugs (Sulfonamides)
  • Psychotropic Drugs
  • Antibiotics
  • Nucleic Acids

Sections contain introductions to basic concepts underlying the fields addressed and a specific bibliography relating to each field. Each experiment provides detailed instructions in a user-friendly format, and can be carried out, in most cases, without the need for expensive instrumentation. This comprehensive laboratory manual offers much-needed instructional material for teaching laboratory classes in pharmaceutical chemistry. The breadth of subject matter covered provides a variety of choices for structuring a laboratory course.
