essentials-of-pharmaceutical-chemistryEssentials of Pharmaceutical Chemistry (third edition) is written by Donald Cairns (Associate Head of School of Pharmacy, The Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, UK) and published by Pharmaceutical Press in 2008.

The last few years have seen many changes to the science and practice of pharmacy. The number of UK Schools of Pharmacy is set to double, independent pharmacist prescribing is a reality, and the Royal Pharmaceutical Society is set to split with the creation of a regulatory body and a Royal College. This third edition of Essentials of Pharmaceutical Chemistry has been written against this backdrop of major change. A new chapter on regulation and licensing of drugs and medicines has been included and every other chapter has been reviewed and updated, particularly the chapter on analytical spectroscopy which now includes a section on structure elucidation.
