IUPAC COMISSION OF MEDICINAL CHEMISTRY. Medicinal chemistry in the development of societies. Biodiversity and natural products. Quím. Nova [online]. 2001, vol.24, n.1, pp.153-155. ISSN 0100-4042.

This document here has been elaborated by the IUPAC Medicinal Chemistry section and is backed by a large number of scientists, many of whom have had direct involvement and whose names appear at the end of the article. This work discusses the role that the discovery of new medicinal agents has in the development of societies as well as in the conservation of biodiversity in terms of the work carried out on natural products. Also included are several recommendations for countries which are presently in search of their own scientific and technological development in medicinal agents. The IUPAC Medicinal Chemistry section would appreciate the collaboration of the scientific societies in every country to aid in the diffusion of this document.

Keywords : medicinal chemistry; biodiversity; development of societies.
