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 eminent authorities in the field and are mainly focused on plant-based anti-amoebic natural products, the role of natural products in analgesic drug development, and in essential oils in cognitive performance. The chapters also highlight the importance of modern medicines derived from cannabis, lectins, brassinosteroids, and plant derived antimalarials.

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. Shehzad Naqvi (Editorial Manager Publications) and Mr. Mahmood Alam (Director Publications) at Bentham Science Publishers.
