This book provides the ultimate resource for medicinal and pharmaceutical chemists, presenting concise chemical, physical, and bibliographic data on drugs and pharmacological agents. More than 30,000 compounds are contained in 8,200 entries.
Coverage includes all currently marketed drugs, pharmacological tools, bioactive natural products, and compounds in the later stages of clinical trials.
The types of data provided include
synonyms indicating generic names, trade names, and company codes
accurately drawn diagrams depicting stereochemistry
molecular formulae and weight
physical properties, including melting point and/or boiling point
partition coefficients - both experimental and calculated
hazard and toxicity data
