About this Book

In this exciting 2 volume set, the approach and methodology of bio-inspired synthesis of complex natural products is laid out, backed by abundant practical examples from the authors' own work as well as from the published literature.

Volume 1 describes the biomimetic synthesis of alkaloids.

Volume 2 covers terpenes, polyketides, and polyphenols.

A discussion of the current challenges and frontiers in biomimetic synthesis concludes this comprehensive handbook.

Key features:

  • Biomimetic Strategies have become an every-day tool not only for chemists but also for biologists. The synthetic applications are overwhelming, making this comprehensive 2 volume work a must-have for everyone working in the field.
  • Unifying both synthetic and biosynthetic aspects, this book covers everything from organocatalysis and natural product synthesis to synthetic biology and even green chemistry.
