Recent Advances in Polyphenol Research Hardback
Edited by Annalisa Romani, Vincenzo Lattanzio, Stephane Quideau
Part of the Recent Advances in Polyphenol Research series
Plant polyphenols are secondary metabolites that constitute one of the most common and widespread groups of natural products.
They express a large and diverse panel of biological activities including beneficial effects on both plants and humans.
Many polyphenols, from their structurally simplest representatives to their oligo/polymeric versions (also referred to as vegetable tannins) are notably known as phytoestrogens, plant pigments, potent antioxidants, and protein interacting agents. Sponsored by the scholarly society Groupe Polyph nols, this publication, which is the fourth volume in this highly regarded Recent Advances in Polyphenol Research series, is edited by Annalisa Romani, Vincenzo Lattanzio, and St phane Quideau.
They have once again, like their predecessors, put together an impressive collection of cutting-edge chapters written by expert scientists, internationally respected in their respective field of polyphenol sciences.
This Volume 4 highlights some of the latest information and opinion on the following major research topics about polyphenols: Biosynthesis and genetic manipulationEcological role of polyphenols in plant defenseActions of polyphenols in human health protectionPhysical organic chemistry and organic synthesis Chemists, biochemists, plant scientists, pharmacognosists and pharmacologists, biologists, ecologists, food scientists and nutritionists will all find this book an invaluable resource.
Libraries in all universities and research institutions where these disciplines are studied and taught should have copies on their bookshelves.
