Chemistry XXI The Problem Drugs are chemical compounds that interact with a biological system to produce a biological response. It is thus of central importance to know how to control their synthesis as well as their chemical behavior inside our body. Drugs should be able to resist decomposition inside our body and target specific organs or sites without affecting others. Tetracycline
