Providing a much needed reference on all known marine products, the Dictionary of Marine Natural Products with CD-ROM indexes each product by chemical name, CAS registry number, and compound type. Derived in format from the Chapman & Hall Chemical Database, this comprehensive volume is mirrored on an accompanying CD-ROM that is fully text and structure-searchable. Each entry includes biological source, chemical structure, physical properties, biological activity, and literature references. This pioneering tool gives researchers immediate access to the information they need to further develop those novel pharmaceuticals, pesticides, and marine anti-fouling agents, made possible by the novel molecular structures of marine natural products.
This reference compilation is, at first glance, expensive, but the investment will yield excellent returns from the wealth of information contained therein. Any group working on marine natural products and many groups exploring microbial metabolites will find value in this compilation. --John H. Cardellina II, ReevesGroup, in Journal of Natural Products "Overall, this reviewer is deeply impressed with the huge efforts by both editors to publish the Dictionary of Marine Natural Products. This is an excellent reference book for researchers who are interested in marine natural products." --Zhendong Jin, Division of Medicinal and Natural Products Chemistry, College of Pharmacy, University of Iowa, in Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, 2008, Vol. 51, No. 5 "This database retains all the advantages currently associated with CRC's Dictionary of Natural Products with the added convenience of having all of the data they need in a single source...an essential tool for the rapid dereplication of newly isolated compounds...The written descriptions of taxonomy and compound classes derived exclusively from marine natural products are particularly useful..." --Dr. John W. Blunt, Co-Editor
