About this book

The pharmacopoeias of most African countries are available and contain an impressive number of medicinal plants used for various therapeutic purposes. Many African scholars have distinguished themselves in the fields of organic chemistry, pharmacology, and pharmacognosy and other areas related to the study of plant medicinal plants. However, until now, there is no global standard book on the nature and specificity of chemicals isolated in African medicinal plants, as well as a book bringing together and discussing the main bioactive metabolites of these plants. Medicinal Plant Research in Africa explores the essence of natural substances from African medicinal plants and their pharmacological potential. In light of possible academic use, Medicinal Plant Research in Africa also scans the bulk of African medicinal plants extract having promising pharmacological activities.
