Chemicals from Nature, known as Natural Products, have played an important role in the lives of humans and in all living organisms since the emergence of life on our planet. Natural products are closely involved in all aspects of our lives. Impressive progress has been made in recent decades with multidisciplinary studies centered on improved isolation and separation techniques, access to bioassays, spectroscopic techniques used to analyse structures and, understanding of enzymatic processes, biogenetic and biosynthetic pathways. The aim of the Symposium is to present an overview of developments in multidisciplinary research which have contributed significantly to applications of chemicals from nature or natural products in Health and Agriculture.
