Comprehensive Natural Products III, Third Edition, updates and complements the previous two editions, including recent advances in cofactor chemistry, structural diversity of natural products and secondary metabolites, enzymes and enzyme mechanisms and new bioinformatics tools. Natural products research is a dynamic discipline at the intersection of chemistry and biology concerned with isolation, identification, structure elucidation, and chemical characteristics of naturally occurring compounds such as pheromones, carbohydrates, nucleic acids and enzymes. This book reviews the accumulated efforts of chemical and biological research to understand living organisms and their distinctive effects on health and medicine and to stimulate new ideas among the established natural products community.

  • Provides readers with an in-depth review of current natural products research and a critical insight into the future direction of the field
  • Bridges the gap in knowledge by covering developments in the field since the second edition published in 2010
  • Split into 7 sections on key topics to allow students, researchers and professionals to find relevant information quickly and easily
  • Ensures that the knowledge within is easily understood by and applicable to a large audience
