Reviews

“In the Chemistry of Antibiotics and Related Drugs, Bhattacharjee (chemistry and biochemistry, Long Island Univ.) writes about the many different classes of compounds approved over the last century that still are, or have been, used to treat infectious diseases. The book is organized around the targets of these compounds. … this book is heavily referenced and will be valuable to practicing researchers and advanced students. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above; faculty and professionals.” (P. W. Baures, Choice, Vol. 54 (9), May, 2017)
