Reviews

"...Donald Cairns is a well-known educator, mentor, and researcher...this is an excellent resource for pharmacy students taking pharmaceutical chemistry and for individuals who intend to pursue a career in the pharmaceutical industry...Readers will find this as a useful reference." Doody's Notes, May 2012. NOT "Medicinal Chemistry," but "Pharmaceutical Chemistry." This is a great book detailing the basic chemistry of drugs...Throughout the book there are problems that can be worked, and it includes the answers at the end of the book. It is very easy-to-read and has very good graphics to support the discussions. In addition to being a good text, it is a good refresher for those that would like to review this topic. January 2012, Compounding Today.
