Natural Products

A section of Molecules (ISSN 1420-3049).

Section Information

The Natural Products Section of the journal Molecules publishes original research and timely review articles on all aspects of natural product chemistry. The Section aims to increase our knowledge on the isolation, analytical characterization, chemical structure, biological activity, biosynthesis and the use of natural products for human benefit.

As a section of a chemical journal, all presented work must be clearly related to chemical knowledge, i.e. work on extracts or herbal preparations without characterization of chemical constituents will not be considered.

In particular (but not exclusively), this Section invites contributions that report on:

  • Isolation and structure elucidation of new natural products
  • Analytical characterization of natural products using state-of-the art methods
  • Methods for quality control of herbal and other natural medicinal preparations or foodstuff
  • Biological activity (pharmacology and toxicology) of natural products including in vitro and in vivo pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics
  • Structure–activity studies of natural products and analogues
  • Ethnomedicinal and ethnopharmacological studies with clear relation to the chemical constituents of the investigated material
  • Studies on the biosynthesis of natural products
  • Total or semi-synthesis of natural products and analogues
  • Studies on chemical ecology and related aspects
