Analytical methods in traditional medicines

Traditional medicinesMore and more lately we are finding that the traditional medicines from the past have medicinal qualities that can fight modern diseases and medical conditions. A lot of research is now being directed at studying traditional herbs and medicines for bioactive compounds in an attempt to find new treatments.

Analytical Methods presents an excellent forum for such work, and below is a sample of the high-quality work we have published in this area.  These articles are free to access until 31st May 2012 so make the most of this and take a look!
