The Organic Chemistry of Drug Design and Drug Action 3rd Edition

The Organic Chemistry of Drug Design and Drug Action, Third Edition, represents a unique approach to medicinal chemistry based on physical organic chemical principles and reaction mechanisms that rationalize drug action, which allows readers to extrapolate those core principles and mechanisms to many related classes of drug molecules.

Natural Product Biosynthesis Chemical Logic and Enzymatic Machinery 1st Edition

This new edition includes updates to all chapters, including new examples and references. It reflects significant changes in the process of drug design over the last decade and preserves the successful approach of the previous editions while including significant changes in format and coverage.

This text is designed for undergraduate and graduate students in chemistry studying medicinal chemistry or pharmaceutical chemistry; research chemists and biochemists working in pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.

  • Updates to all chapters, including new examples and references
  • Chapter 1 (Introduction): Completely rewritten and expanded as an overview of topics discussed in detail throughout the book
  • Chapter 2 (Lead Discovery and Lead Modification): Sections on sources of compounds for screening including library collections, virtual screening, and computational methods, as well as hit-to-lead and scaffold hopping; expanded sections on sources of lead compounds, fragment-based lead discovery, and molecular graphics; and deemphasized solid-phase synthesis and combinatorial chemistry
  • Chapter 3 (Receptors): Drug-receptor interactions, cation-p, and halogen bonding; atropisomers; case history of the insomnia drug suvorexant
  • Chapter 4 (Enzymes): Expanded sections on enzyme catalysis in drug discovery and enzyme synthesis
  • Chapter 5 (Enzyme Inhibition and Inactivation): New case histories:
    • for competitive inhibition, the epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor, erlotinib and Abelson kinase inhibitor, imatinib
    • for transition state analog inhibition, the purine nucleoside phosphorylase inhibitors, forodesine, and DADMe-ImmH, as well as the mechanism of the multisubstrate analog inhibitor isoniazid
    • for slow, tight-binding inhibition, the dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor, saxagliptin
  • Chapter 7 (Drug Resistance and Drug Synergism): This new chapter includes topics taken from two chapters in the previous edition, with many new examples
  • Chapter 8 (Drug Metabolism): Discussions of toxicophores and reactive metabolites
  • Chapter 9 (Prodrugs and Drug Delivery Systems): Discussion of antibody-drug conjugates
