This book, Experimental Pharmaceutical Organic Chemistry, is meant for D. Pharm and B. Pharm students. The book has been prepared in accordance with the latest syllabi of pharmacy courses. Chemistry is a fascinating branch of science. Practical aspects of chemistry are interesting due to colour reactions, synthesis of drugs, analysis and observation of beautiful crystal development. The important aspects involved in the practicals of pharmaceutical organic chemistry have been comprehensively covered in the book and the subject matter has been organized properly. The language is easy to understand. I hope the students studying pharmaceutical chemistry would be benefitted from this book.
In the book, general and specific safety notes in detail are provided followed by explanation of common laboratory techniques like glassware handling, heating process, crystallization, filtration, drying, melting & boiling point, chromatography etc. A number of equipments, apparatuses and glass wares used in a pharmaceutical chemistry lab are also provided with diagrams. Specific qualitative methods for estimation of elements, functional groups and some individual compounds have been described. Derivative preparation of some organic compounds is presented to further confirm the presence of a particular compound. Syntheses of different organic and pharmaceutical compounds with chemical reaction have also been given.
It is my belief that this book will cater to the needs of the Diploma and undergraduate pharmacy students during their study as well as after completion of their course. Constructive comments on the content and approach of the book from the readers will be highly appreciated.
