Special Issue "Natural Sterols"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019.
Interests: natural product chemistry; isolation; structure determination; sterols; terpenoids
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Sterols are among the most studied groups of natural products with interest commencing in the 19th century and continuing through to the present. Sterols occur in all major groups of organisms, from fungi to humans, as secondary metabolites. We now plan to edit this Special Issue on “Natural Sterols”. Please submit your recent results of the following areas: Isolation, analytical method, structure determination, synthesis, biosynthesis, enzymatic process, biotransformation, and biological activity. We aim to provide a platform to present the valuable results of your research in these areas.
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Yasunori Yaoita
