ORGANIC MEDICINAL AND PHARMACEUTICAL CHEMISTRY 12th Ed
For 6 decades, Wilson and Gisvold’s Textbook of Organic Medicinal and Pharmaceutical Chemistry has
been a standard in the literature of medicinal chemistry. Generations of students and faculty have depended
on this textbook not only for undergraduate courses in medicinal chemistry but also as a supplement
for graduate studies. Moreover, students in other health sciences have found certain chapters useful.
The current editors and authors worked on the 12th edition with the objective of continuing the
tradition of a modern textbook for undergraduate students and also for graduate students who need a
general review of medicinal chemistry. Because the chapters include a blend of chemical and pharmacological
principles necessary for understanding structure–activity relationships and molecular mechanisms
of drug action, the book should be useful in supporting courses in medicinal chemistry and in
complementing pharmacology courses.
