Introduction

Recent advances in Medicinal Chemistry is a book series focused on leading-edge research on developments in rational drug design, synthetic chemistry, bioorganic chemistry, high-throughput screening, combinatorial chemistry, drug targets, and natural product research and structure-activity relationship studies. The series presents highly cited contributions first published in the impact factor journal Mini-Reviews in Medicinal Chemistry. Contributors to this volume have updated their work with new experimental data and references following their initial research. Each volume highlights a number of important topics in current research in medicinal chemistry.

Selected chapters in this volume include:

- A brief review of polyphenols as phytotherapeutic agents

- Flavonoids in foods and biological samples

- Cannabinoid use in treating Parkinson’s Disease symptoms … And much more.
