Phytochemical potential of tropical plants( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout the tropics, vast areas of rainforest and other biologically diverse lands are being cleared for agricultural or related uses. Rainforests, the most dramatic example of tropical habitat destrucLion, are estimated to be disappearing at the rate of up to 20.4 million hectares per year world-wide (based on FAO estimates; see World Resources 1990-1991, Oxford University Press)­ more than 2% of the total area covered by tropical rainforests per year. Destruction of these complex habitats results in the irreversible loss of both plant and animal diversity, and dramatically illustraLes the need to investigate these threatened species for potentially useful constituents-especially the identification and characterization of novel biologically-active phytochemicals with pharmacologiical and/or pesticidal properties. This volume is based on papers presented by invited speakers at an international symposium entitled "Phytochemical POlential of Tropical Plants: held in conjunction with the second joint meeting of the Phytochemical nd Societies of Europe and North America, as well as the 32 annual meeting of the latter society. The meeting was held at the Deauville Hotel, Miami Beach, Florida, USA from August 8-12,1992. One hundred and twenty-five participants from more than 20 countries attended this meeting

The Chemistry and biology of isoquinoline alkaloids by J. D Phillipson( Book )

8 editions published between 1982 and 1985 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Isoquinolines form one of the largest groups of plant alkaloids and they inƯ clude a number of valuable clinical agents such as codeine, morphine, emeƯ tine and tubocurarine. Research into different aspects of isoquinolines conƯ tinues in profusion, attracting the talents of botanists, chemists, biocheƯ mists, analysts, pharmacists and pharmacologists. Many of these aspects are of an interdisciplinary nature, and in April 1984, The Phytochemical Society of Europe arranged a 3-day symposium on The Chemistry and BiƯ ology of Isoquinoline Alkaloids in order to provide a forum for scientists of differing disciplines who are united by a common interest in this one class of natural product. Each chapter in this volume is based on a lecture given at this symposium. Attempts have been made to make the aims and objectives, experimental findings and conclusions reached, intelligible to scientists of differing backgrounds. The introductory chapter, which is mainly based on a historical discusƯ sion, stresses that plants containing isoquinolines have proved to be both a boon and a curse to mankind. The Opium Poppy, Papaver somniferum, produces the medicinally used alkaloids morphine, codeine, noscapine and papaverine whilst it also continues to provide drugs of abuse, particularly morphine and its readily prepared O, O-diacetyl derivative, heroin. NumerƯ ous other alkaloids have been isolated from other members of the PapaverƯ acea, and a knowledge of their presence and distribution within the various species has proved a useful adjunct to systematic botanical studies
