This book highlights analytical chemistry instrumentation and practices applied to the analysis of natural products and their complex mixtures, describing techniques for isolating and characterizing natural products.
• Applies analytical techniques to natural products research – an area of critical importance to drug discovery
• Offers a one-stop shop for most analytical methods: x-ray diffraction, NMR analysis, mass spectrometry, and chemical genetics
• Includes coverage of natural products basics and highlights antibacterial research, particularly important as efforts to combat drug resistance gain prominence
• Covers instrumental techniques with enough detail for both current practitioners and beginning researchers
