Jon Njardarson and colleagues, University of Arizona, USA, have developed a range of posters that present the structures of all the pharmaceuticals approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since its creation in 1906. Each poster displays every small-molecule drug approved to treat conditions within a disease category or affecting a specific biological system. The structures within each area of medicine are arranged in chronological order based on when they were first approved.

The twelve disease categories currently covered are:

  • Anti-infective
  • Cardiovascular system
  • Nervous System
  • Sensory Organs
  • Dermatological
  • Oncological
  • Respiratory System
  • Muskulo-Skeletal
  • Genito-Urinary and Sex Hormone
  • Endocrine System
  • Blood and Blood Forming Organs
  • Alimentary Tract and Metabolism

The posters are free to download. They make useful tools for teaching both undergraduate and graduate students in addition to serving as a springboard for ideas for researchers interested in the development of new synthetic methods.
