Chemoinformatics in Drug Discovery - Tudor I. Oprea, Tudor I. Oprea
This handbook provides the first-ever inside view of today's integrated approach to rational drug design. Chemoinformatics experts from large pharmaceutical companies, as well as from chemoinformatics service providers and from academia demonstrate what can be achieved today by harnessing the power of computational methods for the drug discovery process. With the user rather than the developer of chemoinformatics software in mind, this book describes the successful application of computational

Computational and Structural Approaches to Drug Discovery - Royal Society of Chemistry, Stephen Neidle, Marius Clore, Simon Campbell
Computational methods impact all aspects of modern drug discovery and most notably these methods move rapidly from academic exercises to becoming drugs in clinical trials... This insightful book represents the experience and understanding of the global experts in the field and spotlights both the structural and medicinal chemistry aspects of drug design. The need to 'encode' the factors that determine adsorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion and toxicology are explored, as they remain

Molecular Orbitals of Transition Metal Complexes - Yves Jean, Colin Marsden, Roald Hoffman
This book starts with the most elementary ideas of molecular orbital theory and leads the reader progressively to an understanding of the electronic structure, geometry and, in some cases, reactivity of transition metal complexes. The qualitative orbital approach, based on simple notions such as symmetry, overlap and electronegativity, is the focus of the presentation and a substantial part of the book is associated with the mechanics of the assembly of molecular orbital diagrams. The first

Operational Organic Chemistry: A Problem-Solving Approach to the Laboratory Course - John W. Lehman
This comprehensive laboratory text provides a thorough introduction to all of the significant operations used in the organic lab and includes a large selection of traditional-scale experiments and minilabs. Its unique problem-solving approach encourages students to think in the laboratory by solving a scientific problem in the process of carrying out each experiment. The Fourth Edition contains a new introductory section, "Chemistry and the Environment," which includes a discussion of the

Elements of Chemistry - Gerard R. Dobson, Simon G. Bott
This approach to teaching first-year college chemistry is unique. The book is written with the clear understanding that the student it is reaching is not just the science major but also the liberal arts student. A phenomenological/historical approach to chemistry is employed which emphasizes that experiment precedes theory. It begins with the historical development of science and an early emphasis on the behavior of gases, from which our understanding of atoms, molecules, and stoichiometry has

A Life of Discovery: Michael Faraday, Giant of the Scientific Revolution - James Hamilton
In a world of darkness perched on the edge of discovery, Michael Faraday lit up the world of science, contributed to the Industrial Revolution, and changed the lives of everyone on Earth. Now a superb new biography illuminates the life of this amazing, reclusive, deeply contradictory man. Born in 1791, Faraday was the son of a blacksmith with a thin education, yet he was gifted with a rare intelligence and intuition. He was a devout member of a small Christian sect that believed in the Bible’s

The Electric Life of Michael Faraday - Alan Hirshfeld
The Electric Life of Michael Faraday dramatizes Michael Faraday's passion for understanding the dynamics of nature. He manned the barricades against superstition and pseudoscience, and pressed for a scientifically literate populace years before science had been deemed worthy of common study. A friend of Charles Dickens and an inspiration to Thomas Edison, the deeply religious Faraday sought no financial gain from his discoveries, content to reveal God's presence through the design of nature.
