Extensive experimentation and high failure rates are a well-recognised downside to the drug discovery process, with the resultant high levels of inefficiency and waste producing a negative environmental impact. Sustainable and Green Approaches in Medicinal Chemistry reveals how medicinal chemistry can play a direct role in addressing this issue.
After providing essential context to the growth of green chemistry in relation to drug discovery, this book goes on to identify a broad range of practical techniques and useful insights, revealing how medicinal chemistry techniques can be used to improve efficiency, mitigate failure and increase the environmental benignity of the entire drug discovery process.
Drawing on the knowledge of a global team of experts, Sustainable and Green Approaches in Medicinal Chemistry encourages the growth of green medicinal chemistry, and supports medicinal chemists, drug discovery researchers, pharmacologists and all those in related fields across both academia and industry in integrating these approaches into their own work.
- Highlights the need for adoption of sustainable and green chemistry pathways in drug development
- Reveals risk factors associated with the drug development process and the ways sustainable approaches can help address these
- Identifies novel and cost effective green medicinal chemistry approaches for improved efficiency and sustainability

Since being awarded his PhD by the Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science, Calcutta, Professor Banik has held positions as a Postdoctoral Fellow at Case Western Reserve University and Stevens Institute of Technology; Tenured Full Professor in Chemistry and First President’s Endowed Professor in Science & Engineering at the University of Texas-Pan American, Edinburg; an Assistant Professor in Molecular Pathology at the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, Houston; and a Research Assistant Professor in Chemistry & Chemical Biology at Stevens Institute of Technology, New Jersey. Since 2014, he has been the Vice President of Research & Education Development of Community Health Systems of South Texas. Professor Banik has designed, synthesized, and identified novel beta lactams derived from polyaromatic compounds as anticancer agents. He is involved in the asymmetric synthesis, biological evaluation, delivery of compounds to increase the effectiveness and mechanism of actions studies of beta lactams and polyaromatic compounds as anticancer agents. Some of his catalytic methods have received exceptional recognitions by the chemical and scientific community. Professor Banik has more than 315 publications to his name and has presided over numerous research sessions at top conferences in the field, including one at the Nobel Prize celebration in Germany.
