Medicinal Natural Products, Second Edition is a comprehensive guide providing information on all classes of natural products in medicine. It builds upon fundamental chemical principles and demonstrates a unique integration of plant, microbial and animal natural products in one volume. The text guides the reader through a wealth of diverse natural metabolites used in medicine with sources, production methods, use as drugs and modes of action all extensively covered.

Taking a chemistry based approach it combines traditional pharmacognosy with medicinal chemistry. The structure is user-friendly and includes the acclaimed grey boxes on groups of products and detailed mechanistic explanations. The Second Edition retains the user-friendly style and highly acclaimed features of the First Edition, and has been extended and fully updated:

  • Adopts a novel biosynthetic theme rather than a traditional descriptive approach
  • Includes extensive further reading at the end of the chapter
  • Thoroughly revised and updated to incorporate comprehensive coverage of plant, microbial and animal products
