The present book "Pharmaceutical Chemistry Inorganic, Vol I has been written according to the revised syllabus framed by the Pharmacy council of India as per Education Regulations 1991. In this book, subject matter has been recognised incorporating applicationwise classification(Therapeutic, pharmaceutical etc.) rather than the traditional chemical classification. More emphasis has been further laid by explaining the medical and pharmaceutical terms and to what extent it is justifiable to classify a compound under any of the categories. Inevitably, students will find repetition for some compounds which find more than one application.
