Description

In a classical alphabetical format, this two-volume reference covers more than 1000 painstakingly screened natural product structures. For each compound or compound class, a basic chemical characterization is given, followed by a description of the biological source and a discussion of their pharmaceutical potential as lead molecules for new drugs. The latter takes into account the documented uses of many of these compounds in Asian traditional medicine.
By way of its clearly structured, single-page articles, and with the aid of classification tables in the appendix, this dictionary is easy to use and provides quick and reliable information researchers as well for scholars and students.

"This book is clearly for specialists, the natural product chemist and the pharmaceutical chemist . . . I do not know whether Goutam Brahmachri intends a revised edition in the future but I am sure there will be an ongoing demand for a book like this." (Reference Reviews, 2011)

"... a useful addition to the bookshelf of every natural material specialist..." (Pharmazie in unserer Zeit, 2010) (review in German)"The author has succeeded in compiling an impressive and highly informative reference text on many pharmaceutically relevant natural products. I would recommend this book to everyone involved in research with biologically active natural products as a convenient and practical source of high quality information." (ChemMedChem, October 2010)

"The author has succeeded in compiling an impressive and highly informative reference text on many pharmaceutically relevant natural products. I would recommend this book to everyone involved in research with biologically active natural products as a convenient and practical source of high quality information. In addition, it is easy to see how leafing through the pages of this handbook, with its dense array of fascinating molecular architectures, could inspire new ideas even on seemingly old compounds."
