About the Book

This book is a laboratory companion to the author's book, Chemistry of Natural Products: A Unified Approach, Second edition (Universities Press, 2010). The main objective is to provide students with experimental details for the successful isolation of different types of natural products.

The handbook has been extensively revised and updated. Apart from including additional examples under isolation, chemical transformation and synthesis, two new chapters have been added to enlarge the scope of the book and make it useful to students of organic chemistry and biochemistry. They are:

  • Metabolism of Natural Products
  • Suggested Projects

Notes on how to collect and identify plant materials, and the preparation of diagnostic chemical reagents used in the characterisation of natural products, have been included.

The chemistry of natural products is a hybrid science combining the theory of organic chemistry with experimentation. This book contains a judicious combination of both spectroscopic and chemical methods. All the experiments have been successfully class tested.
