Studies in Natural Products Chemistry, Volume 57, covers rapid developments in spectroscopic techniques and advances in high-throughput screening techniques that have made it possible to rapidly isolate and determine the structures and biological activity of natural products in new drug development. The series also covers the synthesis of the medicinal properties of natural products, providing cutting-edge accounts of fascinating developments in the isolation, structure elucidation, synthesis, biosynthesis and pharmacology of a diverse array of bioactive natural products. Specific sections in this release cover broad-spectrum health protection of extra virgin olive oil compounds, synthesis of cardiac steroids and their role on heart failure and cancer, and more.
- Focuses on the chemistry of bioactive natural products
- Contains contributions by leading authorities in the field
- Presents sources of new pharmacophores
