About this Book Series

First published in 1973 and completing in 1999, The Total Synthesis of Natural Products is a truly comprehensive review series comprising 11 volumes and providing thorough coverage of the total synthesis of a wide variety of natural and naturally occurring products. The series draws inspiration from the work of Nobel Prize Winners, Robert Burns Woodward and Elias James Corey, who were instrumental in the total synthesis of many major natural products. The series will be of vital use not only to synthetic and process chemists in academia and industry but also to medicinal chemists and chemists working in drug discovery.

Each volume reviews the total synthesis of a set of compounds looking at syntheses reported historically and at the practice current at the time of publication. From volume 1 focusing on carbohydrates, prostagladins, nucleic acids, antibiotics, naturally occurring oxygen ring compounds and pyrrole pigments, the series continues with coverage of aromatic steroids, monoterpenes, triterpenes, sesquiterpenes, cannabinoids, natural inophores, insect pheromones and alkaloids. Volumes revisit the total synthesis of key compounds such as carbohydrates, nucleic acids and pyrrole pigments several times during the series building a picture of the historic development of total synthesis techniques for these major groups. Chapters are edited by experts in their field to give a complete overview of the best in the field at the time.
