Volume 26 of "Studies in Natural Product Chemistry" presents the chemistry of a large number of exciting natural products. All of the chapters reflect the importance of the biological activity of nature's molecules - activity which continues to inspire the evolution of new drugs against disease. Topics covered include: the triterpenoid saponins from the Caryophyllaceae family; developments in the total synthesis of bioactive marine fatty acids; and the chemistry and biological activity of secologanin, lignans, saffron and the bark of Fraxunus ornus. A range of natural compounds which are utilised in the assessment of environmental issues are also discussed, as are the pharmacological activities and applications of essential oils, plant growth regulators and phytotoxins. The chemistry and bioactivity of secondary metabolites is reviewed in this volume, together with the structure, chemistry and biological activity of resveratrol oligomers. Recent developments in the chemical behaviour, toxicology and chemical ecology of compounds found in bracken fern are reviewed. The occurrence, structure and bioactivity of 1,7-diarylheptanoids is covered, together with the structures and biological activities of natural insecticides. Potential anti-parasitic substance from natural sources is presented here, as is the chemistry and bioactivity of nitric oxide (NO) in plant and animal cells. The role of O-aminophenol-type tryptophan metabolites in living organisms is also discussed.
