The Smallest Drugs Here is the updated version of the "smallest drugs" collection that I did the other day. Here are the criteria I used: the molecular weight cutoff was set, arbitrarily, at aspirin's 180. I excluded the inhaled anaesthetics, only allowing things that are oils or solids in their form of use. As a small-molecule organic chemist, I only allowed organic compounds - lithium and so on are for another category
Amino Acids: biologically important organic compounds made from amine (NH2) & carboxylic acid (COOH) functional groups along with a side-chain specific to each one; key elements are C, H, O, N w/ other elements in side-chains; about 500 known aa's
