The chemistry behind medicine is important and necessary to study many different drugs and their effects. In this project, we focused on the chemical composition and mechanisms of various drugs. The drugs we focused on include Opioids, NSAIDs, and other medications, such as Benzodiazepines and antibiotics. For each drug, we provided its structure as well as the functional groups, which include a part of a molecule that is recognized based on its arrangement of atoms. Organic Chemistry provides individuals with an understanding of various organic compounds, and this field of study is important as it explains the ways in which medications and drugs work within the body.
