Revising chapters before the exam is essential and plays a very important role in a students life. It gives you an idea of how well prepared you are. Therefore, we are providing Chemistry Revision Notes for Chapter 16 – Chemistry in Everyday Life. To produce a biological response macromolecular targets interact with the low molecular mass chemicals known as drugs. Drugs are classified based on:
- Pharmacological effect
- Drug action
- Chemical Structure
- Molecular targets
Different types of drug-target interactions:
- Enzymes as drug targets
- Receptors as drug targets
To learn more about this chapter, please go through the revision notes given below. We have also provided links to some of the topics related to this chapter.
Frequently asked Questions on CBSE Class 12 Chemistry Notes Chapter 16: Chemistry in Everyday Life
What is ‘Pharmacological effect’?
