Natural products present in the plant and animal kingdom offer a huge diversity of chemical structures, which are the result of biosynthetic processes that have been modulated over the millennia through genetic effects. With the rapid developments in spectroscopic techniques and accompanying advances in high-throughput screening techniques, it has become possible to isolate and then determine the structures and biological activity of natural products rapidly, thus opening up to the pharmaceutical industry exciting opportunities in the field of new drug development. The series covers all of the above as well as the synthesis, testing and recording of the medicinal properties of natural products. Describes the chemistry of bioactive natural products Contains contributions by leading authorities in the field A valuable source for researchers in natural product and medicinal chemistry

A must-read handbook on heterocycle chemistry with a focus on sustainability Heterocycles feature prominently in our daily life—they are essential for pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, and fine chemicals. More, numerous natural, bioactive products contain heterocyclic compounds. As a result, heterocyclic chemistry continues to be one of the most important areas of study in organic chemistry. Heterocycles provides an important reference on a wide range of topics relating to heterocyclic chemistry, with a heavy emphasis on sustainable methods and greener syntheses. The book describes state-of-the-art synthetic methods, such as photochemical reactions, dearomatization reactions, organocatalysis, transition metal catalysis, and biocatalysis. It also covers: Sustainable methods, like flow chemistry, mechanochemistry, and multicomponent synthesis Strategies for the synthesis of heterocyclic macrocycles and medium-sized rings Characterization of heterocyclic compounds Heterocycles is a useful reference for organic chemists, natural products chemists, catalytic chemists, and medicinal chemists in academia and industry.

Herbal Drug for the Management of Infectious Diseases The book is a comprehensive compilation of herbal drug applications for the treatment and management of infectious diseases and addresses issues related to development, challenges, and future prospects associated with the use of herbal medicine. The use of herbal medicines has evolved in various cultures around the world over many millennia. In many developing Asian and African countries, the use of herbal medicines, as supplied by traditional medicinal practitioners, has always been popular. In the last two to three decades, many people in developed countries have begun to turn to alternative or complementary therapies, including the use of herbal medicines, nutraceuticals, functional foods, and other supplements. This resurgence in interest in plant-derived medicines is partly due to the growing dissatisfaction with allopathic medicines, as well as the perception that plant-derived medicines are natural and therefore pure and without side effects, and the progress in the production of higher quality herbal medicines including some with proven clinical efficacy and safety. Infectious diseases are generally caused by pathogenic microorganisms, like bacteria, viruses, parasites, or fungi, and are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Therefore, the 16 chapters of this book have been intentionally sequenced to cover the therapeutic potential and applications of herbal extracts and phytochemicals for the management of various infectious diseases. Disease pathophysiology, an overview of current medication or treatment, in-vitro and in-vivo evaluations of relevant biological activities of herbal extracts and phytochemicals, mechanisms of action, clinical trials, and novel technologies for the delivery of herbal bioactive compounds as well as patents have also been included. Audience Chemists, pharmaceutical scientists, biologists, herbal/Ayurvedic/medicinal practitioners, as well all those in the medical sciences working on medicinal plants and infectious diseases.
