Asymmetric Domino Reactions Book Review:

This book covers the latest developments in asymmetric domino reactions, focussing on those published in the last 6 years. These fascinating reactions have rapidly become one of the most current fields in organic chemistry, since they allow reaching easily high molecular complexity in an economically favourable way with advantages of savings in solvent, time, energy, and costs. Unsurprisingly, the high levels of efficiency and enantioselectivity generally reached in these reactions have been exploited for the production of a wide number of complex chiral molecules with dense stereochemistry and functionality, which are motifs present in biologically active compounds and natural products. The book is divided into three principal sections, dealing successively with asymmetric domino reactions based on the use of chiral auxiliaries, asymmetric domino reactions based on the use of chiral metal catalysts, and asymmetric domino reactions based on the use of chiral organocatalysts, covering the literature since the beginning of 2006try{F5_flush(document);}catch(e){}

Small Molecule Drug Discovery Book Review:

Small Molecule Drug Discovery: Methods, Molecules and Applications presents the methods used to identify bioactive small molecules, synthetic strategies and techniques to produce novel chemical entities and small molecule libraries, chemoinformatics to characterize and enumerate chemical libraries, and screening methods, including biophysical techniques, virtual screening and phenotypic screening. The second part of the book gives an overview of privileged cyclic small molecules and major classes of natural product-derived small molecules, including carbohydrate-derived compounds, peptides and peptidomimetics, and alkaloid-inspired compounds. The last section comprises an exciting collection of selected case studies on drug discovery enabled by small molecules in the fields of cancer research, CNS diseases and infectious diseases. The discovery of novel molecular entities capable of specific interactions represents a significant challenge in early drug discovery. Small molecules are low molecular weight organic compounds that include natural products and metabolites, as well as drugs and other xenobiotics. When the biological target is well defined and understood, the rational design of small molecule ligands is possible. Alternatively, small molecule libraries are being used for unbiased assays for complex diseases where a target is unknown or multiple factors contribute to a disease pathology. Outlines modern concepts and synthetic strategies underlying the building of small molecules and their chemical libraries useful for drug discovery Provides modern biophysical methods to screening small molecule libraries, including high-throughput screening, small molecule microarrays, phenotypic screening and chemical genetics Presents the most advanced chemoinformatics tools to characterize the structural features of small molecule libraries in terms of chemical diversity and complexity, also including the application of virtual screening approaches Gives an overview of structural features and classification of natural product-derived small molecules, including carbohydrate derivatives, peptides and peptidomimetics, and alkaloid-inspired small molecules

Domino and Intramolecular Rearrangement Reactions as Advanced Synthetic Methods in Glycoscience Book Review:

The book consists of a brief introduction, a foreward provided byprofessor Danishefsky of Columbia University, and about 14 –16 chapters, each written by one or two eminent scholars/authorsdescribing their recent research in the area of either dominoreactions or intramolecular rearrangements in carbohydratechemistry. Three or four chapters will be reviews. The domino (cascade, tandem)reactions are always intramolecular. They are usually very fast,clean and offer highly complex structures in a one pot process.Intramolecular rearrangements offer very similar advantages andoften lead to highly complex products as well. Although manyrecently isolated carbohydrates fulfill various sophisticatedfunctions, their structures are often very complex. The editorscover the broadest scope of novel methodologies possible. All thesynthetic and application aspects of domino/cascade reactions areexplored in this book. A second theme that will be covered isintramolecular rearrangement, which is also fast, stereoselective,and often constitutes one or more steps of domino /cascade process.Selected examples of intramolecular rearrangements are presented.Together, both processes offer an elegant and convenient approach to the synthesis of many complex molecules,which are normally difficult to synthesize via alternative routes.It appears that domino and intramolecular rearrangements areideally suited to synthesize certain specific modifiedmonosaccharides. What is particularly important is that bothprocesses are intermolecular and almost always yield products withvery well-defined stereochemistry. This high definition isabsolutely crucial when synthesizing advanced, modified mono andoligosaccharides. The choice of contributors reflects anemphasis on both therapeutic and pharmacological aspects of carbohydratechemistry.

Medicinal Chemistry of Anticancer Drugs Book Review:

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
