Many small molecules occur naturally as "messenger" chemicals whichregulate the behaviour and functions of microbes, plants, insectsand animals. Examples include hormones, pheromones, phytoalexins,and antifeedants. These biofunctional molecules are of greatinterest to researchers in helping develop our understanding ofbiological function and in the development of new drugs. Howeverextracting them from nature can be prohibitively expensive, sothere is great interest in devising methods of synthesising themfrom simple starting materials in the laboratory.

Chemical Synthesis of Hormones, Pheromones and OtherBioregulators is an introduction to the techniques andstrategies for the synthesis of biofunctional small molecules.Topics include:

  • what are biofunctional molecules?
  • why must biofunctional molecules be synthesized?
  • how can we synthesize biofunctional molecules?
  • the synthesis of phytohormones, phytoalexins and otherbiofunctional molecules of plant origin
  • the synthesis of insect juvenile hormones and antifeedants
  • the synthesis of pheromones and the significance of chiralityin pheromone science
  • the synthesis of microbial hormones and pheromones,antibiotics, and other biofunctional molecules of microbialorigin
  • the synthesis of marine antifeedants and medicinalcandidates
  • a synthetic examination of incorrectly proposed structures ofbiomolecules
  • reflections on science as a human endeavor

Drawing on a career of almost 50 years researching and teachingthis subject, Kenji Mori's Chemical Synthesis of Hormones,Pheromones and Other Bioregulators is a must-have textbook forstudents and researchers of organic synthesis and natural products,and a stimulating and inspiring account of a distinguished chemicalcareer.

From the Back Cover:

Many small molecules occur naturally as 'messenger' chemicals whichregulate the behaviour and functions of microbes, plants, insectsand animals. Examples include hormones, pheromones, phytoalexins,and antifeedants. These biofunctional molecules are of greatinterest to researchers as they help to increase our understandingof biological functions and they are useful in the development ofnew drugs. However, extracting them from nature can be expensive sothere is great interest in devising methods of synthesizing themfrom simple starting materials in a laboratory.

Chemical Synthesis of Hormones, Pheromones and OtherBioregulators is an introduction to techniques and strategiesfor the synthesis of biofunctional small molecules. Topicsinclude:

  • biofunctional molecules and organic synthesis
  • synthesis of phytohormones, phytoalexins and otherbiofunctional molecules of plant origin
  • synthesis of insect bioregulators other than pheromones
  • synthesis of pheromones
  • synthesis of biofunctional molecules of microbial origin
  • synthesis of marine bioregulators, medicinals and relatedcompounds
  • synthetic examination of incorrectly proposed structures ofbiomolecules
  • conclusion — science as a human endeavour

Drawing on a career of almost 50 years of researching andteaching this subject, Kenji Mori's Chemical Synthesis ofHormones, Pheromones and Other Bioregulators is a must-havetextbook for students and researchers of organic synthesis andnatural products, and a stimulating and inspiring account of adistinguished career in chemicals.

About the Author:

Professor Kenji Mori has nearly 50 years experience researching and teaching the synthesis of biofunctional small molecules. He has been awarded the Japan Academy Prize (1981), the Silver Medal of the International Society of Chemical Ecology (1996), the American Chemical Society's Ernest Guenther Award in the Chemistry of Natural Products (1999), the Special Prize of the Society of Synthetic Organic Chemistry, Japan (2003), and the Frantisek Sorm Memorial Medal of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic (2003). He is the author of “The Total Synthesis of Natural Products, Vol. 9” (Wiley, 1992), considered by many to be the authoritative volume on pheromone synthesis, and over 750 peer-reviewed research papers.
