 About The Book  

  The Organic Pharmaceutical Chemistry has been described in a review as ‘a standard textbook for diploma students’.
   The present sixth edition comes with a changed title as “Harkishan Singh and V.K. Kapoor’s Organic Pharmaceutical Chemistry” maintaining the style and contents of the proceeding edition. The coverage in each of the chapters related to medicinal agents has been updated by including the important drug substances used clinically and covering the drugs and formulations official in the Indian Pharmacopoeia 2010 and its addenda. The unofficial drugs which are included in the Education Regulations 1991 of the Pharmacy Council of India continue to be appropriately dealt.
   The scope covers the chemical nomenclature of organic drugs, their general properties and storage conditions, particular aspects of stability, uses and listing of pharmaceutical preparations of the official drugs. So far as the chemical nomenclature is concerned, the focus is on drugs having simple structures.
   The appendices on organic groups, simple hetrocyclic systems, doses of organic drugs and the glossary of medical terms may appeal to students in general, irrespective of their level of study. The appendices on revision exercises and objective questions may also be useful.
