About this product
- DescriptionDrugs: Synyms and Properties provides comprehensive coverage of the 10,000 drugs currently in common use worldwide. Its overall organization and inclusion of detailed chemical information fills an important gap in drug information. This reference, edited by a world--rewned authority in drug design and chemical information and w in its second edition, has become one of the bibles of pharmaceutical research and application. This book organizes the 10,000 drugs currently in use by therapeutic category. Therefore all tranquilizers, all antidepressants, or all arexic agents, for example, are grouped together. In all, 204 categories are represented. This arrangement means that all drugs in a given category can be reviewed very easily and their relative properties compared quickly. A key component of this reference is the extensive coverage of synyms. The book includes an index of over 30,000 drug synyms and trade names with a cross--reference to their main entry. This extraordinarily comprehensive view of trade names and generic synyms makes Drugs: Synyms and Properties one of the world's most exhaustive references in its field. For each main entry, the following information is provided: chemical name and a list of trade names and synyms; the Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) Registry Number; the European Inventory of Existing Commercial Chemical Substances (EINECS) Number; the Merck Index (Twelfth Edition) Number; the physical properties of each compound; and the kwn biological activity and indicated applications. Indexes, including a master index of names and synyms, and of manufacturers and suppliers, are appended. This reference will be invaluable to research chemists, biologists, and physicians and to anyone interested in drugs who, starting with a single synym for a drug, will be able to quickly find a thumbnail sketch of the essential information concerning that agent.
