Main description:

'Natural Compounds: Plant Sources, Structure and Properties' details the properties of over 7,500 chemical compounds of pharmacological interest found in plants. Each volume systematically covers occurrence of the compounds in plants, illustrations of chemical structures plus physical-chemical, spectral, and pharmacological data. Entries are indexed by plant name, subject, and pharmacological property. This provides unique coverage of information on compounds isolated from some 3,000 plants, including many from central Asia and Russia, that are not well known elsewhere. The entries for each compound share a similar format. The entries are preceded by tabulated information on the occurrence of the compounds in plants etc. The highly experienced team of compilers from the renowned Institute of the Chemistry of Plant Substances in Tashkent have expertly assessed the international literature and include data only when confident of its validity, e.g. excluding data where measurement processes cause degradation of the original compound.


Provides natural product chemists and pharmaceutical researchers important chemical data, with common and family names of the plants in which these active compounds naturally occur 

Covers 7,500 compounds with illustrations of their chemical structures 

Coverage of 3,000 plants - many lesser known from Central Asia and Russia 

Each entry includes citations to peer-reviewed journal literature

From the reviews:

“This multivolume compendium features over 7,500 unique natural plant compounds … . Each volume is divided into two chapters; the first is organized alphabetically by plant family, subspecies, and their associated natural products, followed by references to their original discovery. The second chapter, alternatively organized by structural class, focuses on the physical, pharmacological, and spectroscopic properties of each compound. … Summing Up: Recommended. Researchers/faculty and professionals/practitioners.” (D. L. Jacobs, Choice, Vol. 51 (1), September, 2013)
