The first edition of Bioactive Compounds from Natural Sources was published in a period of renewed attention to biologically active compounds of natural origin. This trend has continued and intensified?natural products are again under the spotlight, in particular for their possible pharmacological applications. Largely focusing on natural products as lead compounds in drug discovery, Bioactive Compounds from Natural Sources, Second Edition: Natural Products as Lead Compounds in Drug Discovery is actually a completely new volume containing surveys of selected recent advances in an interdisciplinary area covering chemistry of natural products, medicinal chemistry, biochemistry, and other related topics.
Written by some of the most reputed scientists in the field, this second edition includes new chapters from authors who contributed to the first edition as well as many chapters compiled by new authors. Introducing the reader to strategies and methods in the search for bioactive natural products, this book covers topics including:
Compiled for researchers and Ph.D. students working in interdisciplinary fields, this book will also be appreciated by readers without a background in chemistry interested in bioactive natural products, their biological and pharmacological properties, and their possible use as chemopreventive or chemotherapeutic agents. Conversely, the biological and pharmacological data and methods are accessible by chemists.

Professor Corrado Tringali obtained his BA in chemistry at the University of Catania, Italy, in 1973. From 1977 to 1985 he was an assistant professor, teaching courses in organic chemistry and physical methods in organic chemistry. In November 1985 he became an associate professor (organic chemistry), and since November 2001 he has been a full professor (teaching courses in organic chemistry, natural products chemistry, and physical methods in organic chemistry). At present, he is coordinator of the international Doctorate of Research in Chemical Science program at the University of Catania (Cycles XXII –XIV).Review:
Praise for the Previous Edition
"...The title of the book gives a good description of the chapters, which are very detailed and interesting in their multi-disciplinary content of biology, biochemistry and chemistry. Since Professor Tringali is the editor, it is not surprising that the chapters tend to include useful details of NMR data. All of the chapters have a good literature reference list. This book is recommended to all natural products researchers."
?Robert J. Nash, Institute of Grassland and Environmental Research, in Phytochemistry
"The book is well indexed with a detailed subject index and a separate natural source index listing the genus and species of each sample described in the text. References are through 1998, and in general the book is well organized with the format being consistent throughout the volume, making it easy to read. This book is certain to be of interest to those individuals new to the field of natural products as well as to senior scientists interested in a review of the subject areas covered by chapter."
?Mark T. Hamann, The University of Mississippi, in Journal of Natural Products Review
"... All in all, the book, including the excellent references, provides a good introduction to the methods and classes of natural products. It is an excellent starting point for new graduate students, and a useful reference for practitioners in the natural products field."
?W. Ayer, University of Alberta, Royal Society of Chemistry
