Book Description

September 29, 2003 0781743818 978-0781743815 4 Pap/Cdr
Designed to be used as a self-paced review, this text outlines the functional groups common to organic chemistry, reviewing the general topics of nomenclature, physical and chemical properties, and metabolism. The text provides background material for the formal pharmacy courses in medicinal chemistry, easing the transition from general organic chemistry courses required of all pre-pharmacy students. The Fourth Edition will include a workbook on CD-ROM as well as an index on general drug metabolism. Students who use this text are able to complete difficult tasks such as: drawing a chemical structure or official chemical name; predicting solubility of chemicals in liquids; predicting and showing, with chemical structures, the metabolism of organic functional groups; predicting and showing instabilities, with chemical structures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Complete, organized medicinal chemistry review! May 6, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book provides an abbreviated review of organic functional groups, with special emphasis on pharmacophores. The review is well organized and concise, and provides a primer (or review) of IUPAC and Chem Abstracts nomenclature. Recommended for anyone from the student studying for an organic final to the medicinal chemistry professional. Excellent reference.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book March 8, 2007
Format:Paperback
i have been exposed to quite a bit of organic/biochemistry but this book is very well written and serves as a review to these fields as well as a nice intoduction to medicinal chemistry. i guess they all kind of blend together anyway but lemke is a fantastic author, well worth the investment.

This book is good if you want a quick read on FGs in Medicinal Chemistry, you can read it in 3 sessions and pick up some concepts here and there, but you will need to look in other places to expand your knowledge more in depth. For that, I would rather save the money and use it towards the purchase of a good medicinal chemistry book, where you will find the same information and more.... don't get me wrong, this book here is perfect if you have to travel or commute to work by bus or train and need some reading, but to learn beyond it, then this is not for you,

5.0 out of 5 stars glad i bought it December 19, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is fairly easy to understand and a good refresher of functional groups. It helped me prepare for the medicinal chemistry portion of one of my pharmacy classes. I like how it gives examples of common drugs containing important heterocycles. One can also use an old ochem text book instead, but this book is so much lighter and easier to carry around. I read it while snuggled up in bed.

This book is helpful for an organic chemistry class, maybe for a review to strengthen your organic chemistry background for a pharmacology course or pharmacy school.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, solid Organic Review September 26, 2010
By A. Reed
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this in order to prepare myself for an medicinal chemistry course, and was able to chew through it slowly in about 2 weeks. I have not had organic chemistry in 3 years, and it was a fantastic source for bringing old knowledge, and some new, to the forefront of my mind.
