Medicinal chemistry is the science which is a intersection of chemistry, and pharmacology and various other biological specialties, involving design, synthesis and development of drugs. It includes synthetic and computational aspects of the study of existing drugs in development and understanding their structure-activity relationships (SAR).
Medicinal chemistry deals with the design, optimization and development of chemical compounds for use as drugs. It is inherently a multidisciplinary scince that combines the synthesis of drugs followed by the studies investigating their interactions with biological targets to understand the medicinal effects of the drug, its metabolism and side-effects.
