This book will provide a suitable background for graduates and diploma in Pharmacy students on medicinal chemistry, where there is a need to appreciate the rationales behind the synthesis of drugs. The student of Pharmacy will find this book helpful in understanding the basic principles & theory involved in the synthesis of organic compounds and analyzing the drug sample. This practical manual has been written not only to enhance students' understanding of chemistry, but also to capture data and make observations. The book pictures the scheme and the reaction involved in the synthetic procedure. The synthesis of pure drug molecules or compounds is an important step in the process of drug discovery. The medicinal chemistry subject is concerned with the synthesis of organic molecules or compounds to be used as pharmaceuticals hence the careful selection of a particular type of reaction, reagents, solvents, catalysts along with optimized reactions, conditions are most important.
Dr. Mojahid is currently working as an Associate Professor in the School of Pharmacy, Sharda University, Greater Noida, U.P. He holds his Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Chemistry from Jamia Hamdard, New Delhi. Also, he received a postdoctoral research fellowship in Computer-Aided Drug Design from the School of Pharmacy, University of Illinois, U.S.A.
