About the Book

'Compendium of Organic Medicinal Drugs (with detailed synthetic routes)' comprises six volumes of books which provide detailed information on the organic chemistry of top selling medical drugs. Volume 1 of this book series primarily deals with the Chemistry of Respiratory System and Gastrointestinal Drugs.

Based on our knowledge, a chemistry review on the most common generic drugs presently available in the market has not been done before. Therefore, this book has emerged from the idea of providing comprehensive information on the available synthetic routes, physical properties, formulations, clinical pharmacology, toxicity data and applications for each medicinal drug compounds.

In this volume, chemistries pertaining to Respiratory and Gastrointestinal drug compounds are described.

Detailed synthetic routes with complete experimental details for the manufacture of drug compounds and their intermediates are provided with appropriate patent references. Disease based approach for classifying the generic drugs has been followed throughout the book.

This volume will be more valuable to synthetic organic chemists, chemical producers and scientists engaged in the process and product development for the manufacture of active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) and medicinal drug compounds to know the details of drug's syntheses and their manufacturing procedures. We believe this volume would be a very good reference guide to all those involved in the pharmaceutical industry throughout the world.
