Plant phenolics are secondary metabolites that constitute one of the most common and widespread groups of substances in plants. Polyphenols have a large and diverse array of beneficial effects on both plants and animals. For example they are famous as antioxidants, hormones, constituents of essential oils, and natural neurotransmitters.

Sponsored by Groupe Polyphenols, this fourth volume in the highly regarded Recent Advances in Polyphenols Series is a further landmark publication. The Editors of this book, Veronique Cheynier, Pascale Sarni-Manchado and Stephane Quideau (the current President of Groupe Polyphenols), who are themselves highly regarded in this field, have drawn together an impressive list of internationally-respected authors, each providing cutting edge chapters divided into the following key areas:

  • Chemistry and physico-chemistry
  • Biosynthesis, genetics and metabolic engineering
  • The role of polyphenols in plants and ecosystems
  • Health and nutrition
  • Analysis and metabolomics

Recent Advances in Polyphenols, Volume 3, provides cutting edge, up-to-date reviews of an array of exciting and important aspects of these very important plant secondary metabolites. Plant scientists, biochemists, chemists, pharmacognosists and pharmacologists, food scientists and nutritionists will all find this book an invaluable resource. Libraries in all universities and research establishments where these subjects are studied and taught should all have copies on their shelves.
