Six reviews focussing on research at the forefront of natural products synthesis have been published in NPR’s latest themed issue.
The issue opens with the first Viewpoint – a new article type for NPR – in which Sam Danishefsky argues in favour of a reappraisal of the role of natural products as leads for the pharmaceutical industry (DOI: 10.1039/c003211p). Five Review articles follow on topics from across the diverse range of natural products synthesis, including organocatalysis and marine natural products.
This issue follows on from the successful first NPR natural products synthesis themed issue, published in 2008. Since then this key area of research has become an established part of NPR and high-quality synthesis reviews are regularly published throughout the year.
