Description

Drug Design, Volume VI covers practical approaches to the development of bioactive compounds, with focus on antiradiation agents, organ-imaging radiopharmaceuticals, X-ray contrast media, proteinase inhibitors, and pesticide formulations.
The book discusses the chemical routes available for the synthesis of diphenhydramine derivatives, the biological activities, the relationships between structure and activity, and the phase of manipulation in the design of diphenhydramine derivatives. The text also describes the design of antiradiation agents, organ-imaging radiopharmaceuticals, and X-ray contrast media, as well as the rational approach to proteinase inhibitors. The chemical and physical methods of formulation of agricultural pesticides are also encompassed.
Chemists, biochemists, pharmacologists, and people involved in drug design and manufacture will find the book invaluable.
