Modern NMR Approaches for the Structure Elucidation of Natural Products is part of a two-volume set focusing on the structure elucidation of natural products. Volume 1 discusses contemporary NMR approaches including optimized hardware and experimental approaches to obtain both the highest quality and most appropriate spectral data for analysis. It also discusses data processing and algorithmic-based analysis of the data to establish molecular structures. This meshing of details regarding data acquisition, software and hardware approaches to the elucidation of natural products will bring together contributions from leading experts in the field. Volume 2 reviews the application of NMR to the analysis of a series of different natural product families including marine natural products, anti-cancer agents, alkaloids, terpenes, steroids, antibiotics, carbohydrates, peptides and venoms. There are no books on the market that are focused on the unique combination of experimental approaches and modern hardware and software approaches to the structure elucidation of natural products. These books will, spread over 2 volumes, bring together acknowledged experts in the field of structure elucidation and be attractive to those with a specific interest in the characterisation of natural products. The volumes will be an essential resource for NMR spectroscopists, natural product chemists and industrial researchers working on natural product analysis or the characterisation of impurities and degradation products of pharmaceuticals that can be scarce as natural product samples.

About the Author

Antony J. Williams graduated with a BSc and PhD in chemistry from the University of Liverpool and University of London respectively. He subsequently became a Post-doctoral Fellow at the National Research Council in Ottawa and then an NMR Facility Director at the University of Ottawa. He has also worked as an NMR Technology Leader at Eastman-Kodak Company in Rochester and held a number of positions, including Chief Science Officer, at ACD/Labs. In 2007, he established ChemZoo, Inc and became host of ChemSpider, one of the primary internet portals for chemistry. ChemSpider was acquired by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) in 2009 and Dr Williams is currently Vice-President of Strategic Development at the RSC. He presently holds an adjunct position at UNC-Chapel Hill and has been a member of the ACS since 1996. Gary E. Martin graduated with a B.S. in Pharmacy in 1972 from the University of Pittsburgh and a Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Sciences from the University of Kentucky in 1975, specializing in NMR spectroscopy. He was a Professor at the University of Houston from 1975 to 1989, assuming the position of Section Head responsible for US NMR spectroscopy at Burroughs Wellcome, Co. in Research Triangle Park, NC, eventually being promoted to the level of Principal Scientist. In 1996 he assumed a position at what was initially the Upjohn Company in Kalamazoo, MI and held several positions there through 2006 by which time he was a Senior Fellow at what was then Pfizer, Inc. In 2006 he assumed a position as a Distinguished Fellow at Schering-Plough responsible for the creation of the Rapid Structure Characterization Laboratory. He is presently a Distinguished Fellow at Merck Research Laboratories.
