Today I received notification that an app to accompany a forthcoming RSC book ” The Handbook of Medicinal Chemistry: Principles and Practice” went live on iTunes.
“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.
If you have an iPad then you can download the app from here.
The book itself will be published in November 2014 and will provide a comprehensive, everyday resource for a practicing medicinal chemist throughout the drug development process
The app will be updated on an ongoing basis with new algorithms and calculators so make sure you check back or update when it tells you.
