About forty percent of the drugs currently used are derived from natural sources. Most are pure substances which are isolated from various organisms and used directly or after modification. This book describes the origin of such compounds, their chemistry and biochemistry as well as their employment in medicine. The material is arranged according to biosynthetic principles, a unique feature which places the substances in a natural context and facilitates understanding and learning of the often complicated chemical structure.
