Key Features

• Comprehensive examination of phosphorus compounds found in plants
• Extensive tables listing types of compounds and their occurrence in plants including: Nomenclature ; Occurrence ; Physical Properties ; Synthesis ; Hydrolysis ; Phosphorylation ; Extraction ; Separation and Analysis;
• Easy to use indexes of plants, compounds and authors


Provides a high level reference source for scientists engaged in any aspect of plant research - chemistry, biochemistry or physiology - with primary focus on the chemistry of phosphorus-containing compounds that occur naturally in the plant kingdom, and specifically in the higher plants (Plantae).

The book is comprehensive with respect to nomenclature, physical properties, and distribution worldwide. There are many tables of actual data on phosphorus compounds occurring in whole plants and parts of plants. The tables provide detailed data that is needed by the food industry, agriculture, etc as many of the phosphorus compounds are common to both plants and animals.

Two appendices cover other aspects including changes in phosphorus-containing compounds during germination and their accumulation during growth and senescence. The final sections of the book comprise separate indexes of plants, compounds and authors.


For chemists, biochemists or physiologist researching the various chemicals that occur in plants

Quotes and reviews

"Intended as a reference for plant scientists, this book essentially presents a catalog of many important plant phosphorous compounds from the important families of compounds. Frank, a chemist who has written for many years on the topic, covers sugar phosphates, phytic acid, lower myo-inositol phosphates, phospholipids, mono and di-nucleotides, and vitamins. The last chapter covers the distribution of these compounds in plants."--Reference & Research Book News, December 2013
