Chemistry for Pharmacy Students Normal, Natural and Pure Product Chemistry by Satyajit D.Sarker and Lutfun Nahar
|E-book Particulars :|
Introduces the key areas of chemistry required for all pharmacy degree courses and focuses on the properties and actions of drug molecules This new edition provides a clear and comprehensive overview of the various areas of general, organic, and natural products chemistry (in relation to drug molecules). Structured to enhance student understanding, it places great emphasis on the applications of key theoretical aspects of chemistry required by all pharmacy and pharmaceutical science students. This second edition particularly caters for the chemistry requirements in any ‘Integrated Pharmacy Curricula’, where science in general is meant to be taught ‘not in isolation’, but together with, and as a part of, other practice and clinical elements of the course. Chemistry for Pharmacy Students: General, Organic and Natural Product Chemistry, 2nd Edition is divided into eight chapters. It opens with an overview of the general aspects of chemistry and their importance to modern life, with emphasis on medicinal applications. The text then moves on to discuss the concepts of atomic structure and bonding and the fundamentals of stereochemistry and their significance to pharmacy in relation to drug action and toxicity. Various aspects of organic functional groups, organic reactions, heterocyclic chemistry, nucleic acids and their pharmaceutical importance are then covered in subsequent chapters, with the final chapter dealing with drug discovery and development, and natural product chemistry. Provides a student-friendly introduction to the main areas of chemistry required by pharmacy degree courses Written at a level suitable for non-chemistry students in pharmacy, but also relevant to those in life sciences, food science, and the health sciences Includes learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter Focuses on the physical properties and actions of drug molecules Chemistry for Pharmacy Students: General, Organic and Natural Product Chemistry, 2nd Edition is an essential book for pharmacy undergraduate students, and a helpful resource for those studying other subject areas within pharmaceutical sciences, biomedical sciences, cosmetic science, food sciences, and health and life sciences.
PREFACE TO Chemistry for Pharmacy Students Normal, Natural and Pure Product Chemistry
The pharmacy occupation and the function of pharmacists within the fashionable healthcare methods have developed fairly quickly over the past couple of many years.
The providers that pharmacists present are increasing with the introduction of supplementary prescribing, provision of well being checks, affected person counselling and many others.
The principle ethos of pharmacy occupation is now as a lot about holding folks wholesome as treating them when they don’t seem to be properly.
The fashionable pharmacy occupation is shifting away from a product focus and in the direction of a affected person focus. To deal with these modifications, and to fulfill the demand of the trendy pharmacy occupation, the pharmacy curriculum, particularly within the developed world, has developed considerably.
Within the western international locations, virtually all registered pharmacists are employed by the group and hospital pharmacies.
As a consequence, the observe, regulation, administration, care, prescribing science and scientific features of pharmacy have develop into the principle parts of pharmacy curriculum.
With a view to incorporate all these modifications, naturally, the basic science parts, e.g. chemistry, statistics, pharmaceutical biology, microbiology, pharmacognosy and a couple of different matters, have been lowered remarkably.
The affect of those latest modifications is extra innocuous within the space of pharmaceutical chemistry. As all medication are chemical compounds, and pharmacy is principally concerning the examine of assorted features of medication, together with manufacture, storage, actions and toxicities, metabolisms and managements,
chemistry nonetheless performs a significant function in pharmacy training. Nevertheless, the extent at which chemistry was taught a few many years in the past has definitely modified considerably.
It has been acknowledged that whereas pharmacy college students want a strong basis in chemistry information the extent can’t be the identical as chemistry college students may have.
There are a number of books on common, natural and pure product chemistry obtainable at this time, however all of them are written in such a way that the extent is just appropriate for undergraduate Chemistry college students, not for Pharmacy undergraduates.
Furthermore, in most fashionable pharmacy curricula, common, natural and pure product chemistry is taught on the first and second yr undergraduate ranges solely.
There are additionally a restricted variety of Pharmaceutical Chemistry books obtainable to the scholars, however none of them can meet the demand of the latest modifications in pharmacy programs within the developed international locations.
Subsequently, there was a urgent want for a chemistry textual content masking the basics of common, natural and pure product chemistry written at an accurate stage for the Pharmacy undergraduates.
Bodily (Preformulation) and Analytical Chemistry (Pharmaceutical Evaluation) are typically taught individually at yr 2 and yr 3 ranges of any fashionable MPharm course, and there are a variety of fantastic and up-to-date texts obtainable in these areas.
Throughout our instructing careers, now we have at all times struggled to search out an acceptable guide that may supply common, natural and pure product chemistry on the proper stage for Pharmacy undergraduate college students, and tackle the present modifications in pharmacy curricula all around the world, at the least within the UK.
We now have at all times ended up recommending a number of books, and additionally writing notes for the scholars.
Subsequently, now we have determined to deal with this subject by compiling a chemistry guide for Pharmacy college students, which can cowl common, natural and pure product chemistry in relation to drug molecules.
Thus, the goals of our guide are to offer the basic information and overview of all core matters associated to common, natural and pure product chemistry presently taught in Pharmacy undergraduate programs within the UK, USA and numerous different developed international locations,
relate these matters to the higher understanding of drug molecules and their growth and meet the demand of the latest modifications in pharmacy curricula.
This Chemistry for Pharmacy Students Normal, Natural and Pure Product Chemistry guide makes an attempt to condense the necessities of common, natural and pure product chemistry right into a manageable, reasonably priced and student-friendly textual content, by concentrating purely on the fundamentals of assorted matters with out going into exhaustive element or repetitive examples.
