Introduction

Recent advances in Medicinal Chemistry is a book series focused on leading-edge research on developments in rational drug design, synthetic chemistry, bioorganic chemistry, high-throughput screening, combinatorial chemistry, drug targets, and natural product research and structure-activity relationship studies. The series presents highly cited contributions first published in the impact factor journal Mini-Reviews in Medicinal Chemistry. Contributors to this volume have updated their work with new experimental data and references following their initial research. Each volume highlights a number of important topics in current research in medicinal chemistry.

Selected chapters in this volume include:

  • - Characterization of Inorganic Nanomaterials as Therapeutic Vehicles
  • - HPLC and its Essential Role in the Analysis of Tricyclic Antidepressants in Biological Samples
  • - Tannins and Their Influence on Health

… And much more.
