About this book

Dictionary of Marine Natural Products presents a comprehensive documentation of all natural products produced by marine organisms (sponges, worms, algae). A vast array of novel molecules are produced, many containing structural features that are unique to marine organisms and are a consequence of the aquatic environment. These novel characteristics make them suitable for investigation as drug candidates, as well as pesticides and marine anti-fouling agents, This revision represents a through updating of this rapidly progressing field, with over 13,000 compounds added since the last edition.

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 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
