Alkaloids are a major group of natural products derived from a variety of organisms, which are widely used as medicinal and biological agents. This Series is world-renowned as the leading compilation of current reviews of this vast field. Internationally acclaimed for more than 40 years, this Series, founded by the late Professor R.H.F. Manske, continues to provide outstanding coverage of the rapidly expanding field of the chemotaxonomy, structure elucidation, synthesis, biosynthesis, and biology of all classes of alkaloids from higher and lower plants, marine organisms, or various terrestrial animals.
Each volume provides, through its distinguished authors, up-to-date and detailed coverage of particular classes or sources of alkaloids. Over the years, this Series has become the standard in natural product chemistry to which all other book series aspire. The Alkaloids: Chemistry and Biology endures as an essential reference for all natural product chemists and biologists who have an interest in alkaloids, their diversity, and their unique biological profile.
@bul:* Indispensable reference work written by leading experts in the field
* Provides up-to-date, timely reviews on compounds and classes of great interest
* Covers synthesis, biosynthesis, biology, as well as isolation and structure elucidation
* An essential research tool for anyone working with alkaloids from a chemical or biological perspective
Chemists, pharmacologists, and biochemists.
