Brand: Brand: CRC Press
This volume is devoted to the research area regarding the biological properties of metal alkyl derivatives, offering an authoritative account of this subject by 16 scientists. In 11 chapters, Biological Properties of Metal Alkyl Derivatives highlights, in detail, derivatives of germanium, tin, lead, arsenic, antimony, selenium, tellurium, cobalt (vitamin B12 derivatives) and nickel (coenzyme F430), including the role of (mainly) micro-organisms in their formation. The derivatives of indium, thallium, bismuth, various transition metals and mercury are also covered to some extent, as are those of the non-metals silicon, phosphorus and sulfur, and the haloperoxidase route of the biogenesis of halomethanes by fungi and plants. The properties of these alkyl derivatives, their biosynthesis, including mechanistic aspects, their appearance in waters (rivers, lakes, oceans) and sediments, and their physiological and toxic effects are summarized.

Lowest used price: $8.01
List price: $125.00
This is the fifth volume which will provide comprehensive and authoritative reviews of the chemistry and biological properties of the various classes of alkaloids. The scope of these volumes will include structure elucidation, synthesis, biogenesis, pharmacology, physiology, taxonomy, spectroscopy and x-ray crystallography of alkaloids. Certain chapters will include treatment of several subjects such as structure of elucidation, synthesis and pharmacology, whereas other chapters will treat a single aspect of alkaloids.

Isoquinoline alkaloids represent one of the two largest groups of alkaloids, the other being indole alkaloids. The present volume, which is the third of this series, describes the spectral data of about 700 isoquinoline alkaloids and covers the literature up to 1992. The spectral data of the remaining classes of isoquinoline alkaloids will be published in another volume within a year.
The compounds are arranged according to their structural types in various subclasses. Within each subclass they are arranged in order of increasing molecular weight. Compounds in the same subclass and having the same molecular weight are arranged in order of increasing carbon number.
The UV, IR, 1H-NMR and 13C-NMR spectral data are given in descending orders of magnitude. All &egr; values in the UV spectra have been converted to log &egr;. The chemical shifts in the 1H-NMR spectral data are presented in ppm and the chemical shifts in the older data published in &tgr; values have been converted to &dgr; values to ensure uniformity of format. The protons and carbons to which the data refers have been italicised. If any of the data given is that of a salt (e.g. hydrochloride) then this is indicated in brackets before the data. If the compounds are known by more than one name, the older names are given in brackets after the newer one. Spectral data of simple derivatives of compounds are also reported, but only if the data for acetyl, benzoyl, methyl and ethyl derivatives are given. The numbering systems used are given both at the beginning of each sub-class as well as at the end of the book. Compound, molecular formula, molecular weight, plant sources and compound-type indices are also included which should enhance the utility of the book.

Volume 8 of this series presents four timely reviews on alkaloids: Chapter 1 is a magnificent and monumental review of curare, "a group of dart and/or arrow poisons varying in composition and featuring muscle relaxation as their basic pharmacological action." The fascinating history of curare is recounted, beginning with early encounters by the Spanish Conquistadores through its use as arrow poisons by the forest tribes in hunting and warfare, its chemistry, ethnography, botany and pharmacology. A terminal section of this chapter treats the development of modern muscle relaxants. This chapter thus traces how curare-initially only a crude plant extract-has given rise to the widely used and very important neuromuscular blocking agents of today. The precise role of plant secondary metabolites and their interactions with insect herbivores have been focal points for research by chemists, botanists and entomologists for many years. Alkaloids and their glycosides are frequently involved as feeding deterrents. Chapter 2 treats the relationships between the chemistry of alkaloids in host plants and the effects that these compounds may have on insect herbivores. Interestingly, an alkaloid produced by a plant may manifest different effects on different insects.

It is refreshing to find a book treating alkaloid analysis with all the latest techniques such as inverse-detected two dimensional NMR, GC/MS, and HPLC associated techniques. There have been many developments in the field of alkaloid analysis since the 1950s, not the least of which are the various powerful spectroscopic methods, which dominate this volume. Included also are the various aspects of tobacco alkaloids and analysis in various situations. The complexities of sampling and analysis in tobacco smoke is explained. Analysis of alkaloids produced by tobacco root cell cultures is included, while genetic and chemical analysis is described for Papaver, a plant of considerable medicinal significance.
