Natural Product Chemistry (Simplified) by Dr. Pankaj B. Miniyar, Mrs. Sunetra K. Patwardhan, S. B. Gokhale
Nature is the best source of biodiversity. The natural products offer a tremendous diversity of chemical structures which are derived from biosynthetic processes that have been modulated over the millennia through genetic effects. The natural products encompass variety of compounds like amino acids, peptides, proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, terpenoids, alkaloids, flavanoids, polypeptides, nucleic acid bases, RNA, DNA and so forth. These are not just outcome of suitability with nature. They are the evidences of complexity and diversity in nature which actually give rise to many new molecules through research. The natural moiety may provide tricky targets throughout drug discovery process.
Due to advancement in spectroscopic techniques and high-throughput screening techniques, one can isolate and then determine the structures and biological activity of natural products rapidly. It opens up new vistas in the field of new drug development to the pharmaceutical industry and offers opportunities to discover new drug.
