Taking medication is a common occurrence for many people, whether it is to soothe an aching head, regulate blood sugars, or to treat life threatening conditions, such as HIV or cancer. In the UK alone, over 900 million prescriptions are dispensed every year. Overseeing all of this are pharmacists: experts in medicines and their use. The Integrated Foundations of Pharmacy series supports those who are at the beginning of their journey to become a pharmacist. The reader will begin to understand how a drug molecule is made; the process that turns it into a medicine; the role the pharmacist has when dispensing that medicine; and what happens in the body when it is taken. Most importantly, the series shows how each of these aspects are integrated, reflecting the most up-to-date teaching practices. Pharmaceutical Chemistry provides a wide-ranging overview of organic chemistry as applied to the study and practice of pharmacy. Drugs are simply chemicals, so to fully understand their manufacture, formulation, and the way they work in our bodies, an understanding of organic compounds and their reactions is essential.

An excellent textbook. Conveys difficult pieces of information in a manner that is light and friendly; especially to students who are relatively new to the subject. I enjoy how the book takes an integrated approach to learning; navigating the reader towards different chapters that have relatable scientific information. * Sokar Salam, student, University of Bradford *
I found the layout of the textbook made it much more user friendly than others and would make the transition to University work much easier and less daunting. It was good to see pages for abbreviations. This makes it clearer to use and even enables you to remember them better. * Jake Doherty, student, UCLan *
