About this book

This exhaustive listing of almost all marine natural products known to date adopts a unique approach in its classification of the compounds by biological species. It also provides background information on the respective species, based on the biological classification of the organisms from which these compounds are derived. The treatise covers more than 8,700 formula, 14,000 references, and 650 websites on almost 1700 pages.

Jean-Michel Kornprobst has now compiled a comprehensive encyclopedia of marine natural products that fills three volumes with densely packed information. It is remarkable that he has covered all aspects in which natural products became important in the scientific literature but still manages to assemble very well organized and readable chapters.

Jean-Michel Kornprobst worked for over 25 years on the chemical analysis of marine natural products, first in Dakar, Senegal and later in Nantes, France. He received his Ph.D. in chemical engineering at the Ecole Nationale Superieure in Montpellier and is currently emeritus at the University of Nantes, where he headed the laboratory of marine chemistry.
