Pharmaceutical Chemistry

Medicinal chemistry aims the identification, synthesis and the development of new chemical compounds that are

suitable for therapeutic use.


Medicinal chemists apply their chemistry training to the process of synthesizing new pharmaceuticals. They also

improve the processes by which existing pharmaceuticals are made. Medicinal chemists are focused on drug discovery

and development and are concerned with the isolation of medicinal agents found in plants, as well as the creation of new

synthetic drug compounds.

It involves many aspects like synthesis, isolation ,purification and characterization of anticipated organic compounds that

can be used in medicine for the treatment and cure of disease. On the other hand it establishes a link between chemical

stracture and biological activity.

It's a very deep and complex discipline that combines knowledge of organic chemistry, combinatorial chemistry,

bioinformatics, biochemistry, pharmacodynamics, Biopharmacy and pharmacokinetic
