The time period steroid has turn into nearly synonymous with drug abuse in game to nearly all of the general public. although those steroids - androgens - truly contain just a unmarried quite small type of biologically energetic steroids, and are overshadowed by way of a wide selection of compounds, a gigantic variety of that are advertisement medicinal drugs that percentage an identical structural carbon skeleton. the advance of those medications has resulted in a wide physique of natural chemistry frequently denoted as "Steroid Chemistry".

Steroid Chemistry At A Glance presents a concise evaluation of the most ideas and reactions of steroid chemistry. subject matters lined include:

  • history, isolation and constitution selection of steroids
  • steroid nomenclature and stereochemistry
  • natural assets of steroids
  • synthesis and reactions of fragrant a-ring steroids, androstanes, and pregnanes
  • steroids with a spirolactone at place 17
  • steroids with hetrocyclic ring A
  • compounds derived from cholesterol

Based at the hugely winning and pupil pleasant "at a look" process, the knowledge is gifted in built-in, self contained double web page spreads of textual content and illustrative fabric. scholars of chemistry and pharmacy utilizing Steroid Chemistry at a Glance will locate they've got a source with which they could quick, concisely and expectantly collect, on a regular basis assessment and revise the fundamental proof that underpin the houses, synthesis and reactions of this significant classification of typical items. it is going to additionally function a convenient bench reference for postgraduates chemists.
