Medicinal Organic Chemistry
In Medicinal chemistry, compounds used as medicines are most often organic compounds. The Applications for Medicinal Chemistry and Organic Chemistry Concepts provides a valuable strengthener for understanding the relationship between those molecular properties chemical bonding that helps to determine medicinal activity. In Organic Chemistry, molecules contain carbon atoms. Carbon with a valency of 4 electrons can create four bonds in accordance with the octet rule. It can form single, double, triple bonds by sharing its valence electrons. It can form ring structures like in benzene. Carbon is capable of forming alcohols, ethers, acids, esters, Ketones, aldehydes which are not possible by other atoms in the periodic table. This is the reason organic chemistry is also called Carbon Chemistry or Chemistry of Carbon Compounds.
