Dr. Krimmer, Director Institutional Marketing, who manages the Pharmaceutical Substances project at Thieme states, "With 51 completely new and some 1,300 fully updated drug monographs, Pharmaceutical Substances Version 3.1 is the most up-to-date resource for researchers in industry and academic institutions involved in the synthesis of active pharmaceutical substances. We greatly appreciate the excellent work of our authors Professors Kleemann, Engel, Kutscher and Dr. Reichert as well as our cooperation partners FIZ Chemie and InfoChem who all worked on very tight deadlines to make this new release happen."
