It is rapidly becoming clear that by incorporating green chemistry techniques earlier in drug development, pharmaceutical companies can greatly speed up the production of potential drugs.Integrating green chemistry protocol into the drug discovery discipline is a relatively new phenomenon, as the scale at which chemists operate in drug discovery is smaller than those used in process and manufacturing chemistry.
Green Chemistry Strategies for Drug Discovery is written by pioneering experts in green chemistry. It provides a practical guide illustrating, to both academic and industrial labs, how to implement greener approaches for the greatest return on their investment, and without slowing down their science.
The editors, Emily A. Peterson and Julie B. Manley, have taken a comprehensive approach to this emerging field, covering the entire drug discovery process from molecule conception, through synthesis, formulation and toxicology with specific examples and case studies where green chemistry strategies have been implemented. They also address cutting-edge topics like biologics discovery, continuous processing and intellectual property.
