Art of Drug Synthesis illustrates how chemistry, biology,
pharmacokinetics, and a host of other disciplines come together to
produce successful medicines. The authors have compiled a collection of
21 representative categories of drugs, from which they have selected as
examples many of the best-selling drugs on the market today. An
introduction to each drug is provided, as well as background to the
biology, pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, and drug metabolism, followed
by a detailed account of the drug synthesis.
