International Journal of Pharmaceutical Chemistry

Our mission is to advance the science and practice of

pharmaceutical chemistry by working to develop and maintain

competence, ethics and integrity and the highest

professional standards in the specialty for the benefit of

the public. The Faculty seeks, through its activities, to

bring about an improvement in the health of the public.

The International Journal of Pharmaceutical

Chemistrypublishes studies that contribute to an

understanding of the relationship between molecular

structure and biological activity or mode of action.

Some specific areas that are appropriate include the


Design, synthesis, and biological evaluation of novel

biologically active compounds, diagnostic agents, or labeled

ligands employed as pharmacological tools.

Molecular modifications of reported series that lead to a

significantly improved understanding of their structure-

activity relationships (SAR). Routine extensions of existing

series that do not utilize novel chemical or biological

approaches or do not add significantly to a basic

understanding of the SAR of the series will normally not be

accepted for publication.

Structural biological studies (X-ray, NMR, etc.) of relevant

ligands and targets with the aim of investigating molecular

recognition processes in the action of biologically active


Molecular biological studies (e.g., site-directed

mutagenesis) of macromolecular targets that lead to an

improved understanding of molecular recognition.

Computational studies that provide fresh insight into the

SAR of compound series that are of current general interest

or analysis of other available data that subsequently

advance medicinal chemistry knowledge.

Substantially novel computational chemistry methods with

demonstrated value for the identification, optimization, or

target interaction analysis of bioactive molecules.

Effect of molecular structure on the distribution,

pharmacokinetics, and metabolic transformation of

biologically active compounds. This may include design,

synthesis, and evaluation of novel types of prodrugs.

Novel methodology with broad application to medicinal

chemistry, but only if the methods have been tested on

relevant molecules.
