Recent Advances in Natural Products Analysis is a thorough guide to the latest analytical methods used for identifying and studying bioactive phytochemicals and other natural products. Chemical compounds, such as flavonoids, alkaloids, carotenoids and saponins are examined, highlighting the many techniques for studying their properties. Each chapter is devoted to a compound category, beginning with the underlying chemical properties of the main components followed by techniques of extraction, purification and fractionation, and then techniques of identification and quantification. Biological activities, possible interactions, levels found in plants, the effects of processing, and current and potential industrial applications are also included.
- Focuses on the latest analytical techniques used for studying phytochemical and other biological compounds
- Authored and edited by the top worldwide experts in their field
- Discusses the current and potential applications and predicts future trends of each compound group

Seyed Mohammad Nabavi is a Biotechnologist and senior scientist in the Applied Biotechnology Research Centre, Baqiyatallah University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran. His research interests are focused on natural products. Till now, he has authored/co-authored over 250 publications in international journals indexed in ISI and has more than 7000 citations to published articles and also more than 10 books.
Mina Saeedi received her Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry in 2011 from Alzahra University under the direction of Professor Majid M. Heravi. The main focus of her Ph.D. research was synthesis of novel heterocyclic compounds. During a sabbatical leave, she joined Professor Lars Engman at Uppsala University, Sweden and worked on the synthesis of chalcogenide antioxidants. Then, she joined the group of Professor Abbas Shafiee at Pharmaceutical Sciences Research Center, Tehran University of Medical Sciences (TUMS) as a postdoctoral fellow. Currently she is an Assistant Professor at TUMS, Persian Medicine and Pharmacy Research Center. Her research has focused on the isolation and identification of organic compounds obtained from natural sources as well as design and synthesis of potentially bioactive compounds, especially those possessing anti-Alzheimer's activity.
