About this book

This book reviews the progress in all key areas of natural product chemistry since 1983. The most significant advances are highlighted over a wide field of chemistry, structure, synthesis and biosynthesis. This book should be of interest to organic, natural product and synthetic chemists, as well as biotechnologists and biochemists.

'The first editon of The Chemistry of Natural Products was published in 1985, and the various chapters then described progress in the ten years preceding 1982/3. This new edition covers the period between then and mid-1992, and in most respects it is a new book rather than a new edition of an existing test. Although the book has the same format as its predecessor, the detailed content and may of the authors of the individual chapters are different...Each chapter has a useful list of literature references. The book is well-produced and can be recommended as providing a varied, interesting, and useful account of progress in different aspects of natural product chemistry over the last ten years.' National Products Reports 'This well written and presented book summarises much elegant chemistry which is accompanied by clearly drawn and well explained reaction schemes...it admirably achieves its purpose...' The Pharmaceutical Journal
