Editorial Reviews

Review

"...an excellent and accurate reference source..." (Journal of Ethnopharmacology, No.81, 2002) 

"...I shall certainly use this text and I shall value it..." (Natural Products Report, Vol.19, No.3, 2002)

"The price of the paper-back will allow not only to have it in the library but also on the personal bookshelf." (Journal of Plant PhysiologyNo.159, 2002)

From the Publisher

Pharmacologically active natural products from plants, microorganisms and animals have been used for centuries in the treatment of diseases. Within the science of pharmacognosy early herbal remedies and animal extracts have been evaluated and analysed to produce both modified (semi-synthetic) extracts and synthetic analogues. This is a concise and informative textbook which provides a comprehensive introduction to natural products in medicine from a biosynthetic point of view, rather than the more usual natural product class or activity viewpoint. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This text is absolutely superb and the only regret I have is that I did not write it myself! I have used it almost exclusively for the natural products chemistry component of our Bachelor of Pharmacy degree course and it comprehensively covers all of the major types of bioactive natural products. Anyone interested in Pharmacognosy will find the book an invaluable reference text. This book will be of great importance for future students of natural products chemistry. I thoroughly recommend its purchase!

Format: Paperback
This is really a wonderful book. The author has a deep insight in world of biosynthesis and medicinal natural products. I have read it all and am using it as a text to my undergaduate pharmacy students. It is just what i was looking for. Thanks Dr. Dewick, i am looking forward to see your second edition soon of this book, maybe this time we will have more about biosynthesis techniques!

Format: Paperback
Medicinal Natural Products: A Biosynthetic Approach is an excellent text for the subject of natural products. There are a number of other text available but many (especially the older text) are really biochemical text disguised as natural products text (such as focusing on fatty acid biosynthesis rather than polyketide synthesis). In addition, many text are too short (I possess a text that describes biosynthetic reactions in 29 pages, a far too brief discussion of this complex field). This book is available in softcover at reasonable cost (a very desirable characteristic for students). I particularly enjoy the historical and pharmacological discussions of famous natural products. It is a good text for 1st year graduate students.

I enjoy reading this book, but I wish there were more mechanisms for the more ivovlved reactions. But, the book takes its time to review concepts and ensure understanding.
