Aims and Scope

Medicinal Chemistry Research is a journal for the prompt disclosure of novel experimental achievements in many facets of drug design, drug discovery, and the elucidation of mechanisms of action of biologically active compounds. Articles are sought which emphasize research in chemical biological relationships, especially with respect to: structure-activity relationships, investigations of biochemical and pharmacological targets of drug action, and correlations of structures with the mode of action of biologically active compounds. Studies will be welcomed that increase our understanding of biochemical interactions between drug molecules, ions, free radicals, and sterically important sections of macromolecular targets. The Journal is also dedicated to medicinal plants and to bioactive natura
