Practical Studies for Medicinal Chemistry

Antonio Monge and Robin Ganellin (eds)
IUPAC, 2006

The aim of this book is to provide developing countries with a practical text for studying medicinal chemistry. The book comprises 41 laboratory exercises that are intended to assist laboratory teaching of medicinal chemistry. Edited by Professors Antonio Monge (University of Navarra, Pamplona, Spain) and Robin Ganellin (University College London, UK), the book is a project of the Division VII Subcommittee on Medicinal Chemistry and Drug Development.

The exercises have been selected because they do not require unusual facilities or expensive materials. The experiments, many of which take advantage of natural resources, were collected by Monge and contributed by university laboratory research teachers in 10 countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Italy, Peru, Portugal, Spain, Uruguay, and Venezuela. All are written in English, and most are also presented in Spanish or Portuguese.

These exercises are intended for advanced students of medicinal chemistry. They are easy to reproduce and, in many cases, are interdisciplinary. Some of the exercises take natural products as the work material and none of them should present difficulties with regard to their realization. All of the experiments are available for free at <www.iupac.org/publications/cd/medicinal_chemistry/index.html>. The exercises may be freely reproduced provided that the name of the contributing author and the IUPAC source is always quoted.

The book is subdivided into the following six
chapters:

  • Chapter I—Physicochemical Properties
  • Chapter II—Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationships
  • Chapter III—Molecular Modeling
  • Chapter IV—Toxicity Studies
  • Chapter V—Drug Synthesis
  • Chapter VI—Natural Products

Antonio Monge <cifa@unav.es> would appreciate receiving suggestions, comments, or possible new experiments. Similarly, should any exercises be translated into another language, then a copy of the translation should be sent to him to facilitate inclusion in future updated versions on the website.
