Medicinal Chemistry Books

Medicinal chemistry is a discipline that encloses the design, development, and synthesis of pharmaceutical drugs. The discipline combines expertise from chemistry, especially synthetic organic chemistry, pharmacology, and other biological sciences.

Medicinal chemistry provides pharmacy students with a thorough understanding of drug mechanisms of action, structure-activity relationships (SAR), acid-base and physicochemical properties, and absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion, and toxicity (ADMET) profiles. Some books are given below,

1. An Introduction to Medicinal Chemistry by Graham L. Patrick (5th Edition)
