Description of Bioactive Natural Products

This single volume entitled Bioactive Natural Products: Opportunities & Challenges in Medicinal Chemistry is an endeavor to underline how natural product research continues to make significant contributions in the domain of discovery and development of new medicinal entities; the present book brings together a total of fourteen articles contributed by eminent natural product chemists from several countries in response to my personal invitation. I am most grateful to the authors for their generous and timely response in spite of their busy and tight schedules with academics, research, and other responsibilities.
