The 4th edition of Pharmaceutical Substances is designed to be a complete reference guide to every pharmaceutical compound of significance. It provides a compendium of nearly 2300 pharmaceutical ingredients of interest to the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Pharmaceutical Substances is an invaluable resource for anybody involved in the design, discovery, development, and evaluation of drugs.

Pharmaceutical Substances was developed by Axel Kleemann and Jürgen Engel, as a solution to the problems they encountered when creating their own bibliography for laboratory research. As a result these two great research chemists have brought together items of information that, in their experience, are used day-in-day-out by pharmaceutical chemists. Together with their co-authors, Bernhard Kutscher and Dietmar Reichert they have created an indispensable tool for researchers.

Pharmaceutical Substances is a first point of reference for any person wishing to screen references to drugs before turning to more detailed primary literature, such as the original patent application or the original research paper. Extensive indexing and cross linking of references provides the reader with a fast and easy way to compare pharmaceutical ingredients with similar characteristics.

All compounds are organized alphabetically according to their International Nonproprietary Name (INN). For added ease of use the book features 4 additional indexes:
