The pharmacy profession and the role of pharmacists in the modern healthcare systems have evolved quite rapidly over the last couple of decades. The services that pharmacists provide are expanding with the introduction of supplementary prescribing, provision of health checks, patient counselling and many others. The main ethos of pharmacy profession is now as much about keeping people healthy as treating them when they are not well.
Chirality is a phenomenon that is manifested throughout the natural world, ranging
from fundamental particles through the realm of molecules and biological organisms
to spiral galaxies. Thus, chirality is of interest to physicists, chemists, biologists, and
astronomers. Chiroptical spectroscopy utilizes the differential response of chiral objects
to circularly polarized electromagnetic radiation. Applications of chiroptical spectroscopy
are widespread in chemistry, biochemistry, biology, and physics. It is indispensable for
stereochemical elucidation of organic and inorganic molecules.
In this chapter, we study the three-dimensional structures of molecules to understand their stereochemical relationships. We compare the various types of stereoisomers and study ways to differentiate among stereoisomers. In future chapters, we will see how stereochemistry plays a major role in the properties and reactions of organic compounds.
the beginning, medicinal therapy consisteodf concoctions coadministered
with incantations. Little thought was given to dissecting out the
contributions of the pharmacology of the concoction from the spiritual
consequences of the incantations. Eventually, potions and extracts were
recognized to have predictable activity that could be observed and described
objectively. Then came the capacity to estimate potency,t o l eading
concentration and purification.
Lecture Biochemistry (2nd edition): Chapter 4 introduce Amino Acids. In this chapter students will be able to understand: Amino Acids: Building Blocks of proteins, Acid-Base chemistry of amino acids, reactions of Amino Acids, optical activity and stereochemistry of Amino Acids, spectroscopic properties of Amino Acids, separation and analysis of a.a. Mixtures.

The biologically most significant genotoxic metabolite of the environmental
pollutant benzo[a]pyrene (B[a]P), (+)-7R,8S-diol 9S,10R-epoxide, reacts
chemically with guanine in DNA, resulting in the predominant formation
-dG and, to a lesser extent, (+)-cis-B[a]P-N
Synthetic rhamnolipids, derived from a natural diacylated glycolipid, RL-2,214, produced by Burkholderia(Pseudomonas) plantarii, were analyzed
biophysically. Changes in the chemical structures comprised variations in
the length, the stereochemistry and numbers of the lipid chains, numbers
of rhamnoses, and the occurrence of charged or neutral groups.
The synthesis of 10 new phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) analogues with modiﬁcations in the phosphate and the carboxylate function is described. Included are two potential irreversible inhibitors of PEP-utilizing enzymes. One incorporates a reactive chloromethylphosphonate function replacing the phosphate group of PEP. The second contains a chloromethyl group substituting for the carboxylate function of PEP. An improved procedure for the preparation of the known (Z)- and (E)-3-chloro-PEP is also given.
A furanolabdane diterpene alcohol was isolated from the rhizomes of the endemic Vietnamese medicinal plant Alpinia tonkinensis Gagnep. (Zingiberaceae). Its absolute stereostructure was established to be (12S)-15,16-epoxy-8(17),13(16),14-labdatrien-12-ol from spectroscopic data and by applying the modified Mosher’s method. It is first report on the natural occurrence and absolute stereochemistry of the diterpene which was previously known as a synthetic intermediate.

With the aim of extending our knowledge on the reaction
pathways of Zn-metallothionein (MT) and apo-MT species
in the presence of Hg(II), we monitored the titration of
-aMT and Zn3

with either HgCl2or Hg(ClO4
by CD and UV-vis spectr-oscopy.
Ribosomes position their substrate at stereochemistry suitable for
peptide bond formation, and promote substrate-mediated cata-lysis. The linkage between substrate orientation, dominated by
remote interactions, and a sizable symmetrical region identified in
all known ribosome structures indicates a guided rotatory motion
of aminoacylated-tRNAs along a ribosomal path leadings to the
advance of nascent peptides into the protein exit tunnel at an
Many pharmacologically important agents are assembled on multimodular
nonribosomal peptide synthetases (NRPSs) whose modules comprise a set
of core domains with all essential catalytic functions necessary for the
incorporation and modification of one building block. Very often, d-amino
acids are found in such products which, with few exceptions, are generated
by the action of NRPS integrated epimerization (E) domains that alter the
stereochemistry of the corresponding peptidyl carrier protein (PCP) bound
