Studies in Natural Products Chemistry, Volume 9

Hardbound. This ninth volume in the series, comprises twenty-five chapters written by outstanding experts at the forefront of their respective fields. Various aspects of the structure elucidation, synthesis, biosynthesis and biological properties of natural products from diverse marine, fungal, bacterial, amphibian and insect sources, as well as lower and higher plants are described. Physical techniques such as NMR and mass spectral methods are emphasized, and advances in enzyme-substrate interactions are also featured.The scope of information given in this book amply testifies to the enormous potential for the future development of natural products from the marine and terrestrial environments to provide the key biological agents for the future benefit of mankind from renewable resources.
