Features

  • Provides fully text and structure-searchable information for more than 25,000 known marine natural products and their derivatives
  • Details the biological source, chemical structure, physical properties, and biological activity, as well as literature references for each entry
  • Indexes each product by chemical name, CAS registry number, type of compound, and type of organism
  • Includes an insightful monograph section written by the editors who are uniquely qualified authorities in this field of natural products
  • Summary

    Driven by the vast, yet largely unexplored, potential of bioactive organisms in the ocean and improvements in analytical techniques to facilitate their research, natural products scientists face an increasing need for single-source reference cataloging the current knowledge and state-of-the-science regarding marine natural products.

    Dictionary of Marine Natural Products with CD-ROM presents a comprehensive resource for more than 25,000 known natural products drawn from marine organisms. Following a similar format to the Chapman and Hall Chemical Database, this dictionary indexes each product by chemical name, CAS registry number, and compound type. Documenting all known marine natural products, each entry includes the biological source, chemical structure, physical properties, biological activity, and literature references for each compound. An accompanying CD-ROM is fully text and structure-searchable and enables unique access to this valuable resource. The editors, John Blunt and Murray Munro, both pioneers in the field, also provide an introductory monograph that describes structural compound types and marine organisms.

    Marine organisms offer a delicate, yet plentiful source for a vast array of novel products whose unique structural features make them suitable drug candidates, pesticides, marine anti-fouling agents, and more. The
    Dictionary of Marine Natural Products Web Version gives researchers a new tool for developing pharmaceutical and chemical applications of marine natural products.

    Editorial Reviews

    This reference compilation is, at first glance, expensive, but the investment will yield excellent returns from the wealth of information contained therein. Any group working on marine natural products and many groups exploring microbial metabolites will find value in this compilation.
    —John H. Cardellina II, ReevesGroup, in Journal of Natural Products

    "Overall, this reviewer is deeply impressed with the huge efforts by both editors to publish the Dictionary of Marine Natural Products. This is an excellent reference book for researchers who are interested in marine natural products."
    —Zhendong Jin, Division of Medicinal and Natural Products Chemistry, College of Pharmacy, University of Iowa, in Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, 2008, Vol. 51, No. 5

    "This database retains all the advantages currently associated with CRC's Dictionary of Natural Products with the added convenience of having all of the data they need in a single source...an essential tool for the rapid dereplication of newly isolated compounds...The written descriptions of taxonomy and compound classes derived exclusively from marine natural products are particularly useful..."
    —Dr. John W. Blunt, Co-Editor
