About The Book

This book may prove useful not only to the students and teachers of degree in pharmacy but also to diploma students and medical students.

The present book "Medicinal Chemistry" has been written according to the revised syllabi of various universities and boards. In this book, subject matter has been organised incorporating application wise classification rather than the traditional chemical classification. More emphasis has been further laid by explaining the medical and pharmaceutical terms and to what extent it is justifiable to classify a compound under any of the categories. Inevitably, students will find repetition for some compounds which find more than one application.

This book may prove useful not only to the students and teachers of degree in pharmacy but also to diploma students and medical students.
