Abstract Relevance of Synchrotron Radiation in Inorganic Medicinal Chemistry ODULARU, Ayodele Temidayo1 Department of Chemistry, University of Fort Hare, Alice 5700, South Africa. Corresponding Author: 201106223@ufh.ac.za/ayodeleodularu@gmail.com This study entails how three synchrotron radiation spectroscopic techniques (infrared microspectroscopy, microphobe X-ray fluorescence imaging, and X-ray absorption spectroscopy) are useful instrumentations to medicinal inorganic chemists in order to solve inorganic medicinal chemistry challenges. The study focuses on cellular uptake circulation, conventional bio transformed conventional agents, and future therapeutic agents.
