Special Issue in Marine Drugs: Bioactive Marine Heterocyclic Compounds
Searching for marine bioactive natural products is an important task in natural product chemistry, medicinal chemistry or for drug discovery which has recently been developing progressively worldwide. This is particularly of relevance in Asia where scientists have the possibility of finding structurally unique or biologically important metabolites as they are surrounded by the sea. This Special Issue in Marine Drugs highlights the isolation and structural determination of bioactive natural products from marine animals, plants, or marine derived microorganisms collected from the Asian seas.
As the Guest Editor, I encourage marine natural products scientists from all over Asia to submit their latest research findings to show the strength of their knowledge in this field, and hope these contributions will assist in drug discoveries of the future.
