Medicinal Natural Products: A Biosynthetic Approach, Third
Edition, provides a comprehensive and balanced introduction to
natural products from a biosynthetic perspective, focussing on the
metabolic sequences leading to various classes of natural products.
The book builds upon fundamental chemical principles and guides the
reader through a wealth of diverse natural metabolites with
particular emphasis on those used in medicine.
There have been rapid advances in biosynthetic understanding
over the past decade through enzymology, gene isolation and genetic
engineering. Medicinal Natural Products has been extended
and fully updated in this new edition to reflect and explain these
developments and other advances in the field. It retains the
user-friendly style and highly acclaimed features of previous
editions:






a comprehensive treatment of plant, microbial, and animal
natural products in one volume



extensive use of chemical schemes with annotated mechanistic
explanations



cross-referencing to emphasize links and similarities



boxed topics giving further details of medicinal materials,
covering sources, production methods, use as drugs, semi-synthetic
derivatives and synthetic analogues, and modes of action




Medicinal Natural Products: A Biosynthetic Approach, Third
Edition, is an invaluable textbook for students of pharmacy,
pharmacognosy, medicinal chemistry, biochemistry and natural
products chemistry.
