Kurzbeschreibung This is a new approach to the teaching of medicinal and bio-organic chemistry. The knowledge of the physical organic chemical basis of drug design and drug action allows the reader to extrapolate to the many related classes of drugs described in standard medicinal chemistry texts. Students gain a solid foundation upon which to base future research endeavors.
