Medicinal Natural Products: A Biosynthetic Approach

Medicinal Natural Products: A Biosynthetic Approach

Medicinal Natural Products: A Biosynthetic Approach, Third Edition, provides a comprehensive and balanced introduction to natural products from a biosynthetic perspective, focussing on the metabolic sequences leading to various classes of natural products.The book builds upon fundamental chemical principles and guides the reader through a wealth of diverse natural metabolites with particular emphasis on those used in medicine.There have been rapid advances in biosynthetic understanding over the past decade through enzymology, gene isolation and genetic engineering. Medicinal Natural Products has been extended and fully updated in this new edition to reflect and explain these developments and other advances in the field. It retains the user-friendly style and highly acclaimed features of previous editions: Read more »

Recomended Ebook: Inorganic Chemistry 5th Edition By Miessler

inorganic chemistry ebookWith its updates to quickly changing content areas, a strengthened visual presentation and the addition of new co-author Paul Fischer, the new edition of this highly readable text is more educational and valuable than ever. Inorganic Chemistry 5th Edition delivers the essentials of Inorganic Chemistry at just the right level for today’s classroom neither too high (for novice readers) nor too low (for advanced readers). Strong coverage of atomic theory and an emphasis on physical chemistry provide a firm understanding of the theoretical basis of inorganic chemistry, while a reorganized presentation of molecular orbital and group theory highlights key principles more clearly (Review By Amazon)

This is readable and high recomended book about inorganic chemistry for chemists and other profesional such as lectures or students at college who want improve their knowledge in the field.

VOGEL’S : Textbook Of Quantitative Chemical Analysis (Fifth Edition)

Quantitative Chemical Analysis

Quantitative chemical analysis is performed to accurately determine the concentration of elements in the material comprising a given sample. A variety of analysis techniques are used for metals and alloys to determine the alloy composition of raw materials to verify conformance to a specification or to identify the alloy used to make a specific component. Quantitative chemical analysis methods are also used occasionally for evaluation of foreign material contaminants in special cases for failure analysis or investigation of product manufacturing or handling problems (

Quantitative chemical analysis may be performed by one or more complimentary techniques, commonly including spark optical emission spectroscopy (Spark OES), inductively coupled plasma spectroscopy optical emission spectroscopy (ICP OES), x ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF), wet chemical analyses, combustion methods, and inert gas fusion(IG).The specific technique chosen will depend on the type of sample, quantity of material available for analysis, desired result, and cost constraints. In most cases, the applicable analysis techniques can detect parts per million concentrations or better  (
