Privileged Structures in Drug Discovery: Medicinal Chemistry and Synthesis
Written from a medicinal chemistry viewpoint, this book collects information about privileged structures and provides the synthetic routes to them. The author describes up to date and state of the art organic synthesis methods to access the privileged structures of interest.
- Describes the drug compounds that have made it to market and the chemistry associated with them
- Offers unique perspective from an experienced author who has worked in many therapeutic areas of medicinal chemistry and used many of the recent advances in organic chemistry to prepare target molecules
- Has numerous medicinal chemistry case studies documenting the use of privileged structures
