  Z252700 Natural Products: Their Chemistry and Biological Significance This highly informative text explores the structure, chemistry, biosynthesis and interaction of natural organic compounds, and their synthesis in the laboratory. The result is a fascinating insight into the underlying chemistry of life processes. The book also identifies the possible roles of natural products such as toxins, psychomimetics and pharmaceuticals. Each chapter is devoted to a particular class of compound and provides a broad coverage by focusing on both primary and secondary metabolite. Natural Products takes a chemical viewpoint but biological interrelationships are also discussed.
  Z731498 PET Chemistry: The Driving Force in Molecular Imaging The incessant progress in the comprehension of molecular processes of disease formation and progression is accompanied by an increasing importance of biomedical molecular imaging methods. PET, a nuclear medical imaging modality, is ideally suited to produce such kinds of images by use of positron-emitting chemical entities. The purpose of this workshop was to discuss and overview applications and technologies in the area of PET chemistry. The book provides the reader with state-of-the-art information on the different applications of PET isotopes, such as F-18, C-11, Ga-68, Cu-64, Y-86, Br-76, Br-77 and I-124, and their impact on molecular imaging. New technical features such as microwaves, microreactors and modules for the synthesis of new PET tracers are discussed.
