Research and Markets: Studies in Natural Products Chemistry, Vol 36, 2012 Contains Contributions by Leading Authorities in the Field

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Elsevier Science and Technology's new book "Studies in Natural Products Chemistry, Vol 36" to their offering.

Natural products present in the plant and animal kingdom offer a huge diversity of chemical structures which are the result of biosynthetic processes that have been modulated over the millennia through genetic effects. With the rapid developments in spectroscopic techniques and accompanying advances in high-throughput screening techniques, it has become possible to isolate, and then determine the structures and biological activity of natural products rapidly, thus opening up exciting new opportunities in the field of new drug development to the pharmaceutical industry. The series also covers the synthesis or testing and recording of the medicinal properties of natural products.

- Describes the chemistry of bioactive natural products

- A valuable source for researchers and engineers working in natural product and medicinal chemistry

Key Topics Covered:

1. Isolation, Biological activities and Synthesis of the Natural Casuarines

2. The Acylpolyamines from Spider Venoms

3. Deep-Sea Hydrothermal Vents as a New Source of Drug Discovery

4. Marine Cyanobacteria: A Treasure Trove of Bioactive Secondary Metabolites for Drug Discovery

5. Novel Bioactive Peptides from Cyanobacteria: Functional, Biochemical and Biomedical Significance
