Special Issue "Synthetic and Biosynthetic Approaches to Marine Natural Products"
A special issue of Marine Drugs (ISSN 1660-3397).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2019
The ocean is the natural habitat for abundant multicellular plants or animals, and unicelular bacteria. These organisms are excellent producers of secondary metabolites with important biological properties. The interesting chemical structures and properties of these marine natural products have attracted the attention of the scientific community, which has made great efforts in the synthesis and biosynthesis of these types of compounds. As Guest Editor of this Special Issue of Marine Drugs, I invite you to provide papers and review articles describing synthetic or biosynthetic approaches to marine natural products. Manuscripts describing total or partial synthesis of marine drugs, as well as analogues, are most welcome.
Prof. Dr. Asunción Barbero
