This book contains articles dealing with discovery, structure elucidation, and elegant synthetic strategies developed for natural products, with an emphasis on the structure activity relationship of bioactive natural products. The contributions, made by some of the world's leading scientists in the field, should be of great interest to the readers. The topics are selected carefully since bioactive natural products are clinically useful pharmaceuticals or the primary compounds under extensive medicinal chemistry exploration. The book provides examples with updated research results which can spur graduate students' interests in bioactive natural products research. It also brings a historical perspective to the chemistry and biology of some selected bioactive compounds, a technique which could inform researchers about the process of developing pharmaceuticals, from discovery to application as drugs.
