Introduction

Medicinal and Environmental Chemistry: Experimental Advances and Simulations is a collection of topics that highlight the use of pharmaceutical chemistry to assess the environment or make drug design and chemical testing more environment friendly.

The ten chapters included in the first part of this book set cover diverse topics, blending the fields of environmental chemistry and medicinal chemistry and have been authored by experts, scientists and academicians from renowned institutions. The book introduces the reader to environmental contaminants and techniques for their quantification and removal. A medicinal perspective for effects and remediation of environmental hazards, and therapeutic strategies available to design new and safer drugs, is addressed with a focus on knowledge about experimental and simulation methods. To further elaborate the importance of environmentally safe chemical practice, the concept of green chemistry has also been covered.

Specialized chapters have been included in the book about persistent organic pollutants, heavy metal and plastic pollutants, the effect of environmental xenoesterogens on human health and the potential of natural products to combat ecotoxicity.

Key Features:

  • - 10 topics which blend environmental chemistry and medicinal chemistry
  • - Contributions from more than 30 experts
  • - Includes introductory topics on environmental pollutants, investigative techniques in drug design and environmental risk assessment and green chemistry
  • - Includes specialized topics on persistent pollutants, ecotoxicity remediation and xenoestrogens
  • - Bibliographic references

This reference is an essential source of information for readers and scholars involved in environmental chemistry, pollution management and pharmaceutical chemistry courses at graduate and undergraduate levels. Professionals and students involved in occupational medicine will also benefit from the wide range of topics covered.
