Bioactive Natural Products

Description

Natural product research has expanded tremendously since the discovery of morphine in the late 1800s. The identification of bioactive compounds for potential new drug discovery from natural products begins from the chemical aspects of separating and isolating the compounds by chromatographic methods followed by characterization and structural elucidation using modern spectroscopic techniques. These fractions and compounds are then subjected to various biological screening in vitro and in vivo before proceeding to clinical trials. Natural product research is now a combination of many fields including chemistry, biology, pharmacology, medicine, and so forth.

The main focus of this special issue includes all chemical and biological aspects of natural products especially on latest methods and techniques. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Natural products from microbes to higher plants including marine organisms
  • Isolation techniques
  • Structural elucidation of the isolated compounds using modern spectroscopic method
  • Hyphenated technique
  • Synthesis of lead compounds
  • Biological activities of extracts and isolated compounds
  • Molecular modeling studies and docking studies of bioactive compounds
  • Metabolomic studies of bioactive compounds
