Natural products chemistry

Natural products in the plant and animal kingdom offer a huge diversity of chemical structures that 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 exciting opportunities in the field of new drug development to the pharmaceutical industry.

This series covers the synthesis or testing and recording of the medicinal properties of natural products, providing cutting edge accounts of the fascinating developments in the isolation, structure elucidation, synthesis, biosynthesis and pharmacology of a diverse array of bioactive natural products. For more information about the series please contact the Series Editor.

atural product chemistry book

`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.’

Natural products chemistry and pharmacognosy

Our natural products research groups are engaged in the development of new treatments for disease based on compounds from nature.

We seek to identify natural product lead compounds for drug development, as well as to understand the mechanism of action of traditional botanical medicines.

We employ cutting edge technology to achieve this goal, and have unique expertise in the application of mass spectrometry to study synergistic interactions in complex natural product mixtures, and the use of surface techniques for in-situ analysis of intact biological organisms.

Students in our program have the opportunity to gain hands-on training in our exceptional mass spectrometry and NMR facilities.

Research in this area is supported by our Medicinal Chemistry Collaborative, which leverages connections with natural product researchers across the UNCG campus and outside the University.
