About this item

As the shortcomings of purely synthetic approaches to biochemical discovery and development are becoming more apparent, interest persists in the intriguing chemistry of natural products as sources of inspiration for unusual new compounds. Uniquely, this book relates the application of extracts from plants to their influence upon history, civilization and, ultimately, the development of modern marvels in medicinal compounds, nutrition products, beverages, perfumes, cosmetics and organic pigments. Moreover, this up-to-date scientific work provides a fascinating point of entry to the chemistry of important natural products explored through the key functional groups of organic chemistry.
