Chemical Functions of Bumetanide & Furosemide

Postby Plasmid2011 » Sat Jul 30, 2011 1:23 pm

Hello
biology online, I am a health science major who is working towards a bachelor's degree. However I am a little puzzle when it comes to naming chemical functions of drugs. I believe I have named them all. For example the drug Lasix should consist of a benzene ring, carboxylic acid, sulfur dixoide, aromatic amine, and acetamide. If I am incorrect may you please correct me by name the right chemical functions of that drug.

I have sent the chemical formulas of both drugs as an attachment. The structures are Bumetanide, and Furosemide.

Thank you,

1) it's not function, you probably mean rather functional groups, although I'm not sure, whether is it used in English
2) why don't you try it by yourself first?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
