This fascinating full coloured textbook presents a brilliant approach for modern isolation and structure elucidation of natural products. Not only the spectroscopic details are included - in addition each chapter is rounded off by plenty of background information.
Written by experienced authors, this book presents numerous natural everyday products with a high range of structural diversity. Twenty natural products have been arranged in five sections, describing three alkaloids, five colored compounds, three carbohydrates and glycosides, seven terpenoids, and two aromatic compounds.
Adopting a highly didactical approach, each chapter features a uniform structure: Background, in-depth information about isolation processes and structural characterization. Alongside the theoretical information many practical hints for the laboratory work are also included. A comprehensive overview of UV-, IR- and NMR-spectroscopy as well as mass-spectrometry for every exemplified compound is provided.
Educating and entertaining, this full-color textbook turns the learning process into a real pleasure, not only for students in natural products chemistry but also experienced professionals.
Carbohydrates and Glycosides
Klaus-Peter Zeller worked several years as technician before he could realise his dream to study chemistry. In 1972 he received his doctoral degree from the University of Tübingen. After postdoctoral work at the Heriot-Watt University Edinburgh he returned to Tübingen where he became Professor in 1983. His research and teaching interests focus on reaction mechanisms, photochemistry, mass spectrometry, and more recently science history.
Hans-Ullrich Siehl is Professor at the university of Ulm. His main interests in experimental physical organic chemistry and NMR spectroscopy were successively expanded and complemented by quantum chemical methods such as computational NMR spectroscopy.
Stefan Berger is Professor at the University of Leipzig. In his research he combines methodological development of NMR and its application to bioorganic problems.
