Description

This series is world-renowned as the leading compilation of current reviews of this vast field. Internationally acclaimed for more than forty years, The Alkaloids: Chemistry and Biology, founded by the late Professor R. H. F. Manske, continues to provide outstanding coverage of this rapidly expanding field. Each volume provides, through its distinguished authors, up-to-date and detailed coverage of particular classes or sources of alkaloids.

This latest volume comprehensively reviews the recent progress of two classes of alkaloid, the C20 diterpene alkaloid and the iboga alkaloid. The former are examined in terms of their classification, distribution and occurence as well as their spectroscopic aspects, biological activities and the determination of stereochemistry. The later are seen through the perspectives of isolation, structure determination and synthesis and additonally reviewed in terms of their involvement in the formation of the natural and semi-synthetic bisindole alkaloids from Catharanthus.

Readership
