Journal of Medicinal and Organic Chemistry is a peer-reviewed, open access publication that prominently discusses the biochemical and organic chemistry applications for the development of novel diagnostic, pharmaceutical product and service to detect and treat various medical conditions. The journal thus offers an open access platform for the pharmacologists, chemists and druggists, medical practitioners, diagnostic centers, clinical practitioners, lab technicians, academicians and students that are keen in exploring bio and organic chemical applications for drug discovery.
Journal of Medicinal and Organic Chemistry focuses on a wide range of topics that highlights various aspects of the field, including Biochemistry, Organic Chemistry, Medical Biochemistry, Heterocyclic Chemistry, Drug Development, Thermodynamics, Coordination Chemistry, Natural Products Chemistry, Physical Biochemistry, Stoichiometry, Medicinal Chemistry, Chemical, Pharmacology, Applied Medicinal Chemistry, Herbal Medicine, and Complementary medicine.
Organic Chemistry is the division of chemistry where the study of structure, properties, composition, reactions, and preparation of carbon-containing compounds (hydroscarbons) are done. It also comprises the study of hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, halogens, phosphorus, silicon, and sulphur.
Medical Biochemistry is the branch of medicine concerned with the biochemistry and metabolism of human health and disease. It is the study of different types of molecules for developing their technology and medicine.
Heterocyclic chemistry is a branch of organic chemistry that deals with the synthesis, properties and application of these heterocycles. A few instances of heterocyclic compounds involve all of the nucleic acids, the most of drugs, majority of the biomass such as cellulose and related materials, and many natural and synthetic dyes. Heterocyclic compound or ring structure is a type of compound that contain at least two different elements as member of its structure.
Drug development is the skill of supplying a new pharmaceutical drug to the market once the mobile compound has been discovered by the operation called drug discovery. It undergoes along the pre-clinical research on microorganisms and animals. New chemical entities (NCEs) also known as New molecular entities(NMEs) are the compounds that bring forward throughout the process of drug discovery.
The medicines which utilizes any of an extent of medical therapies that fall beyond the range of conventional medicine but may be applied alongside it in the treatment of disease and poor health. Examples include -
• Health approaches like conventional Chinese medicine, homeopathy, and naturopathy.
• Mind and body exercises like acupuncture, massage therapy, and tai chi.
• Natural products like herbs, dietary supplements, and probiotics.
Herbal medicine is the utilization of plants to inhibit and treat an illness, or to obtain good health, as well as the drugs and tinctures. An example of herbal medicine is the capsules filled with a plant-based remedy.
Medicinal chemistry and pharmaceutical chemistry are controls at the convergence of chemistry, predominantly synthetic organic chemistry, and pharmacology and various other biological departments, where they are take part with design, chemical synthesis and development for market of pharmaceutical agents, or bio-active molecules.
Pharmacology is the division of biology deals with the study of drug action, where a drug can be defined as any natural, or endogenous molecule which deploy a biochemical or physiological effect on the cell, tissue, organ, or organism. It is the study of the interactions that occur between a living organism and chemicals that affect normal or abnormal biochemical function. If substances have medicinal properties, they are considered pharmaceuticals.
A natural product consists of chemical compound or substance produced by a living organism, found in nature. In actual meaning any substance produced by life is a type of natural product. Although natural products are produced naturally but it can also be prepared synthetically (chemical synthesis). Chemical synthesis plays an important role in the development of organic chemistry by providing synthetic products. The study of natural products offers an excellent strategy toward identifying novel biological probes for a number of diseases. Historically, natural products have played an important role in the development of pharmaceutical drugs for a number of diseases including cancer and infection.
Physical biochemistry is a branch of biochemistry that deals with the theory, techniques and methodology used to study the physical chemistry of biomolecules. It also deals with the mathematical approaches for the analysis of biochemical reaction and the modelling of biological systems. It provides insight to the structure of macromolecules, and how chemical structure influences physical properties of a biological substance.
Coordination chemistry is the analysis of compounds formed between metal ions and other neutral or negatively charged molecules. This complex is known as metal-ion complex. Coordination chemistry emerged from the work of Alfred Werner, a Swiss chemist who examined different compounds composed of cobalt(III) chloride and ammonia. Upon the addition of hydrochloric acid, Werner observed that ammonia could not be completely removed. He then proposed that the ammonia must be bound more tightly to the central cobalt ion. However, when aqueous silver nitrate was added, one of the products formed was solid silver chloride.
Stoichiometry is a section of chemistry that involves using relationships between reactants and/or products in a chemical reaction to determine desired quantitative data. In Greek, stoikhein means element and metron means measure, so stoichiometry literally translated means the measure of elements.

Biochemistry, also known as biological chemistry, deals with the chemical and physico-chemical processes related to the living organisms. It is also the study of the molecular mechanisms by which genetic material encoded in DNA and can result in the procedure of life. The study of chemical substances and vital processes happening in biological organisms and the section of the chemistry beyond biological processes and generation of biologically active molecules are example of biochemistry.

Thermodynamics is the branch of Physical chemistry concerned with heat and temperature and their relation to energy and work. The nature of heat is described by the three laws of thermodynamics: (1) The total energy of an Isolated system can’t change; the law of conservation energy. (2) Heat will not flow from a cold to a hot object spontaneously. (3) It is impossible, in a finite number of operations, to produce a temperature of absolute zero. Thermodynamics uses to huge variety of topics in science and engineering, especially physical chemistry, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering.
