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.


Consolidation, failure of high throughput approaches and rationale design to deliver as promised, and uncertainty of future finances have drawn industry away from innovation to reformulation and repackaging. In this new world, academic research plays an even greater role in drug development, whether built on natural products or novel insights. Blurring of the lines between the traditional fields of chemistry and biology offers opportunities for new discoveries. In this milieu “Recent Advances in Medicinal Chemistry” will find a welcome home.
