Introduction

Frontiers in Natural Product Chemistry is a book series devoted to publishing monographs that highlight important advances in natural product chemistry. The series covers all aspects of research in the chemistry and biochemistry of naturally occurring compounds including coverage of work on natural substances of land and sea and of plants, microbes and animals. Reviews of structure elucidation, biological activity, organic and experimental synthesis of natural products as well as developments of new methods are included.

The third volume of the series brings seven reviews covering natural products from marine plant sources, natural oligosaccharides, topical sesquiterpenes for pain treatment, biological activity of piperidinols and much more.

Preface

Frontiers in Natural Product Chemistry presents recent advances in the chemistry and biochemistry of naturally occurring compounds. It covers a range of topics including important researches on natural substances of plants, microbes and animals. The book is a valuable resource for pharmaceutical scientists and postgraduate students seeking updated and critically important information in natural product chemistry. The chapters are written by authorities in the field. The contents of the present volume represent exciting recent researches on structure elucidation, biological activity, and synthesis of natural products as well as developments of new methods. I hope that the readers will find these reviews valuable and thought provoking so that they may trigger further research in the quest for the new and novel therapies against various diseases.

I am grateful for the timely efforts made by the editorial personnel, especially Mr. Mahmood Alam (Director Publications), and Mr. Shehzad Naqvi (Senior Manager Publications) at Bentham Science Publishers.
