During the last few decades, comparisons of natural products from microorganisms, lower eukaryotes, animals, higher plants and marine organisms are now well documented. This book provides an easy¬to-read overview of natural products. It includes twelve chapters covering most of the aspects of natural products chemistry. Each chapter covers general introduction, nomenclature, occurrence, isolation, detection, structure elucidation both by degradation and spectroscopic techniques, biosynthesis, synthesis, biological activity and commercial applications, if any, of the compounds mentioned in each topic. Therefore it will be useful for students, other researchers and industry. The introduction to each chapter is brief and attempts only to supply general knowledge in the particular field.
This book is compelling with its extensive presentation of the natural product classes and the multitude of individual compounds. "Chemistry of Natural Products" is a substantial tome that enlightens the reader regarding the classes of natural products (occurrence, biosynthesis, analytical methods), but also describes individual compounds in these classes in detail. "Chemistry of Natural Products" cannot be expected to replace other textbooks; say as the total syntheses are described quite tersely, little beyond a listing of the synthetic steps.
