The Chemistry of Natural Products 4 covers the proceedings of the Fourth International Symposium on the Chemistry of Natural Products. This book is composed of fourteen chapters, and begins with a discussion on the impact of natural product chemistry on medicine and the general methods for the construction of complex molecules. Considerable chapters are devoted to the biosynthesis, physico-chemical properties, reactions, and applications of some natural products, including polysaccharides, hormones, ginkgolides, indole, and alkaloids. The remaining chapters highlight the field of chemotaxonomy. This book will prove useful to botanists, chemists, taxonomists, and students.
