Synopsis:

Contemporary Chemical Approaches for Green and Sustainable Drugs provides readers with the knowledge they need to integrate sustainable approaches into their work. Sections cover different aspects of green and sustainable drug development from design to disposal, including computer-aided drug design, green resourcing of drugs and drug candidates, an overview of the health concerns of pharmaceutical pollution, and a survey of potential chemical methods for its reduction. Drawing together the knowledge of a global team of experts, this book provides an inclusive overview of the chemical tools and approaches available for minimizing the negative environmental impact of current and newly developed drugs.

This will be a useful guide for all academic and industrial researchers across green and sustainable chemistry, medicinal chemistry, environmental chemistry and pharmaceutical science.



  • Provides an integrative overview of the environmental risks of drugs and drug by products to support chemists in pre-emptively addressing these issues
  • Highlights the advantages of computer-aided drug design, green and sustainable sourcing, and novel methods for the production of safer, more effective drugs
  • Presents individual chapters written by renowned experts with diverse backgrounds
  • Reflects research in practice through selected case studies and extensive state-of-the-art reference sections to serve as a starting point in the design of any specialized environmentally-conscious medicinal chemistry project
