Medicinal Chemistry Toolkit
The Medicinal Chemistry Toolkit app is a suite of resources to support the day to day work of a medicinal chemist. Based on the experiences of medicinal chemistry experts, we developed otherwise difficult-to-access tools in a portable format for use in meetings, on the move and in the lab. The app is optimised for iPad and contains calculator functions designed to ease the process of calculating values of: Cheng-Prusoff; Dose to man; Gibbs free energy to binding constant; Maximum absorbable dose calculator; Potency shift due to plasma protein binding.
The app has been designed in collaboration with the editors of the forthcoming book, The Handbook of Medicinal Chemistry: Principles and Practice, which will be published in November 2014 providing a comprehensive, everyday resource for a practicing medicinal chemist throughout the drug development process and is an ideal companion for the biannual MedChem Summer school run by the RSC.
