This thesis investigates a range of experimental and computational approaches to the discovery of solid forms. It illustrates an inexpensive, practical and accurate way to predict the crystallizability of organic compounds based on molecular structure alone, while also highlighting the molecular factors that inhibit or promote crystallization. Furthermore, readers will gain a better understanding of the key factors underpinning solid-state structure and diversity. A major part of the thesis highlights experimental work carried out on two structurally very similar compounds, while another main section examines the influence of small changes in structure and substituents on solid-state structure and diversity using computational tools including crystal structure prediction, PIXEL calculations, Xpac, Mercury and statistical modelling tools. In closing, the author presents a fast validated method for solid-state form screening using Raman microscopy on multi-well plates to explore the experimental crystallization space.

Of the thousands of novel compounds that a drug discovery project team invents and that bind to the therapeutic target, only a fraction have sufficient ADME (absorption, distribution, metabolism, elimination) properties, and acceptable toxicology properties, to become a drug product that will successfully complete human Phase I clinical trials. Drug-Like Properties: Concepts, Structure Design and Methods from ADME to Toxicity Optimization, Second Edition, provides scientists and students the background and tools to understand, discover, and develop optimal clinical candidates. This valuable resource explores physiochemical properties, including solubility and permeability, before exploring how compounds are absorbed, distributed, and metabolized safely and stably. Review chapters provide context and underscore the importance of key concepts such as pharmacokinetics, toxicity, the blood-brain barrier, diagnosing drug limitations, prodrugs, and formulation. Building on those foundations, this thoroughly updated revision covers a wide variety of current methods for the screening (high throughput), diagnosis (medium throughput) and in-depth (low throughput) analysis of drug properties for process and product improvement. From conducting key assays for interpretation and structural analysis, the reader learns to implement modification methods and improve each ADME property. Through valuable case studies, structure-property relationship descriptions, and structure modification strategies, Drug-Like Properties, Second Edition, offers tools and methods for ADME/Tox scientists through all aspects of drug research, discovery, design, development, and optimization.

  • Appendix.
This book reviews the fundamental aspects of quinoxaline chemistry: synthesis, reactions, mechanisms, structure, properties, and uses. The first four chapters present a survey of the developments in quinoxaline chemistry since the publication of the monograph on "Condensed Pyrazines" by Cheeseman and Cookson in 1979. These chapters give comprehensive coverage of all the methods of the synthesis of quinoxalines and the important quinoxaline-containing ring systems such as thiazolo[3,4-a]-, pyrrolo[1,2-a]-, and imidazo[1,5-a]quinoxalines. Chapter five describes many new methods for the construction of quinoxaline macrocycles, which are important in applications such as optical devices and materials. The final chapter reviews all previously known rearrangements of heterocyclic systems that lead to benzimidazole derivatives. Mamedov critically analyses these transformations to reveal a novel acid-catalyzed rearrangement of quinoxalinones giving 2-heteroarylbenzimidazoles and 1-heteroarylbenzimidazolones in the presence of nucleophilic reactants (MAMEDOV Heterocycle Rearrangement). This book is of interest to researchers in the fields of heterocyclic and synthetic organic chemistry. .

This thesis presents a general approach to accessing nitrogen-substituted hetero- and carbocycles. In short, the annulation reactions developed in the thesis make it possible to access nitrogen-substituted four-, five- and six-membered rings, all essential building blocks for the synthesis of bioactive molecules. Many natural products display a saturated polycyclic core allowing a well-defined arrangement of functional groups in space. As such, they can interact with biological targets with a high degree of affinity and selectivity, surpassing many synthetic drugs. Nevertheless, the efficient synthesis of such complex ring systems poses a challenge for organic chemistry. Through careful tuning of the electronic properties of a nitrogen donor group and a diester acceptor group, the first [3+2] annulation reaction between aminocyclopropanes and enol ethers or carbonyl compounds is now possible. The reaction proceeded under mild catalytic conditions, and the building blocks obtained can be found at the core of bioactive alkaloids, drugs such as Ramipril and biomolecules such as DNA and RNA. Thanks to the dynamic kinetic asymmetric annulation of aminocyclopropanes with enol ethers and aldehydes, access to enantioenriched compounds is also now possible. Lastly, a synthesis of donor-acceptor aminocyclobutanes via [2+2] cycloaddition using a cheap iron catalyst was developed, allowing them to be used in [4+2] annulations to access cyclohexylamines.

The incorporation of Green Chemistry is a relatively new phenomenon in the drug discovery discipline, since the scale that chemists operate on in drug discovery is smaller than those of process and manufacturing chemistry. The necessary metrics are more difficult to obtain in drug discovery due to the diversity of reactions conducted. However, pharmaceutical companies are realizing that incorporation of green chemistry techniques at earlier stages of drug development can speed the development of a drug candidate. Written by experts who have pioneered green chemistry efforts within their own institutions, this book provides a practical guide for both academic and industrial labs wanting to know where to start with introducing greener approaches for greatest return on investment. The Editors have taken a comprehensive approach to the topic, covering the entire drug discovery process from molecule conception, through synthesis, formulation and toxicology with specific examples and case studies where green chemistry strategies have been implemented. Emerging techniques for performing greener drug discovery chemistry are addressed as well as cutting-edge topics like biologics discovery and continuous processing. Moreover, important surrounding issues such as intellectual property are included. This book serves as a practical guide for both academic and industrial chemists who work across the breadth of the drug discovery discipline. Ultimately, readers will learn how to incorporate green chemistry strategies into their everyday workflow without slowing down their science.

Ion channel drug discovery is a rapidly evolving field fuelled by recent, but significant, advances in our understanding of ion channel function combined with enabling technologies such as automated electrophysiology. The resurgent interest in this target class by both pharmaceutical and academic scientists was clearly highlighted by the over-subscribed RSC/BPS 'Ion Channels as Therapeutic Targets' symposium in February 2009. This book builds on the platform created by that meeting, covering themes including advances in screening technology, ion channel structure and modelling and up-to-date case histories of the discovery of modulators of a range of channels, both voltage-gated and non-voltage-gated channels. The editors have built an extensive network of contacts in the field through their first-hand scientific experience, collaborations and conference participation and the organisation of the meeting at Novartis, Horsham, increased the network enabling the editors to draw on the experience of eminent researchers in the field. Interest and investment in ion channel modulation in both industrial and academic settings continues to grow as new therapeutic opportunities are identified and realised for ion channel modulation. This book provides a reference text by covering a combination of recent advances in the field, from technological and medicinal chemistry perspectives, as well as providing an introduction to the new 'ion channel drug discoverer'. The book has contributions from highly respected academic researchers, industrial researchers at the cutting edge of drug discovery and experts in enabling technology. This combination provides a complete picture of the field of interest to a wide range of readers.

Medicinal Chemistry of Anticancer Drugs, Second Edition, provides an updated treatment from the point of view of medicinal chemistry and drug design, focusing on the mechanism of action of antitumor drugs from the molecular level, and on the relationship between chemical structure and chemical and biochemical reactivity of antitumor agents. Antitumor chemotherapy is a very active field of research, and a huge amount of information on the topic is generated every year. Cytotoxic chemotherapy is gradually being supplemented by a new generation of drugs that recognize specific targets on the surface or inside cancer cells, and resistance to antitumor drugs continues to be investigated. While these therapies are in their infancy, they hold promise of more effective therapies with fewer side effects. Although many books are available that deal with clinical aspects of cancer chemotherapy, this book provides a sorely needed update from the point of view of medicinal chemistry and drug design. * Presents information in a clear and concise way using a large number of figures* Historical background provides insights on how the process of drug discovery in the anticancer field has evolved* Extensive references to primary literature.

The present work offers a snapshot of the state-of-the-art of crystallographic, analytical, and computational methods used in modern drug design and development. Topics discussed include: drug design against complex systems (membrane proteins, cell surface receptors, epigenetic targets, and ribosomes); modulation of protein-protein interactions; the impact of small molecule structures in drug discovery and the application of concepts such as molecular geometry, conformation, and flexibility to drug design; methodologies for understanding and characterizing protein states and protein-ligand interactions during the drug design process; and monoclonal antibody therapies. These methods are illustrated through their application to problems of medical and biological significance, such as viral and bacterial infections, diabetes, autoimmune disease, and CNS diseases. As approaches to drug discovery have changed over time, so have the methodologies used to solve the varied, new, and difficult problems encountered in drug discovery. In recent years we have seen great progress in the fields of genetics, biology, chemistry, and medicine, but there are still many unmet medical needs, from bacterial infections to cancer to chronic maladies, that require novel, different, or better therapies. This work will be of interest to researchers and policy makers interested in the latest developments in drug design.

Medicines play an important role in the treatment and prevention of disease in humans and animals, but residues from these medicines can be released into the environment through a number of routes during their manufacture, use and disposal. It is only recently that the potential environmental impacts of this exposure to pharmaceuticals are being considered. The book explores where pharmaceutical residues can be found, e.g. in surface waters, drinking water, sediments and the marine environment; the sources of these residues, from manufacture through to disposal of unused medicines; how these residues break down; and how this all impacts on wildlife and human health. In reviewing the current position and examining further possible impacts, this book is an important reference for researchers working in the pharmaceutical industry, as well as for environmentalists, policy makers and students on pharmacy and environmental science courses wanting to better understand the impacts of pharmaceuticals on the environment.
