Nobel Prize Chemistry 2021
Another milestone in scientific progress.
The duo developed new tools for building molecules that have helped to make new drugs, that are environmentally friendly.
Most of us are not aware of the product life cycle of new drugs.
The key ingredients are molecules.
For drugs either currently used or new drugs.
Often these molecules are procured from plants or from other biological sources.
Synthesizing molecules and making them usable in drugs is a complex and risky process.
Often drug production requires a lot of trials and validation and these molecules.
If the molecules are not environment friendly it is not good in the long term.
The molecules should be biodegradable.
Here below are more details.
