This book highlights analytical chemistry instrumentation and
practices applied to the analysis of natural products and their
complex mixtures, describing techniques for isolating and
characterizing natural products.
? Applies analytical techniques to natural products research ? an area of critical importance to drug discovery
? Offers a one-stop shop for most analytical methods: x-ray diffraction, NMR analysis, mass spectrometry, and chemical genetics
? Includes coverage of natural products basics and highlights antibacterial research, particularly important as efforts to combat drug resistance gain prominence
? Covers instrumental techniques with enough detail for both current practitioners and beginning researchers
