Interests: phytochemistry; natural products; medicinal chemistry; HPLC; plant secondary metabolites; anti-inflammatory and anticancer activity, pharmacognosy
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
In the last two decades, natural products have been re-discovered as valuable and effective pharmacological agents. In particular, they were shown to exert positive effects in the therapy of acute and chronic diseases, such as cancer, inflammation, neurological disorders, and microbial syndromes. To this concern, many examples of natural products were reported in recent and current literature. The aim of this Special Issue is to collect review and original research articles from several groups worldwide to gain further insights on the up-to-date knowledge in the field of isolation and structural characterization of novel pharmacologically-active agents obtained from the natural kingdom. Such an issue would be of great interest for several categories of scientists operating in different research fields, such as natural product chemistry, phytochemistry, pharmacology, molecular biology, pharmacognosy, medicinal chemistry, pharmaceutical technology, etc.
