Organized in a classical alphabetical format, this two-volume reference covers 1000 carefully screened natural product structures. For each compound or compund class, a basic chemical characterization is given, followed by a description of the biological source and a discussion of their pharmaceutical potential as lead molecules for new drugs. The letter takes into account the documented uses of many of these compounds in Asian traditional medicine. By way of its clearly structured articles, and with the aid of classification tables in the appendix, this dictionary is easy to use and provides quick and reliable information for researchers as well for scholars and student.
