Exhibiting a wealth of interesting activities and novel structures, Boswellic acid and the other terpenoids of the genus Boswellia (from which frankincense is derived) are a growing source of interest for the natural product drug discovery community. Chemistry and Bioactivity of Boswellic Acids and Other Terpenoids of the Genus Boswellia presents, in a single volume for the first time, key research into their structures, synthesis and potential as starting points for the development of medicinal agents.

Drawing on the authors’ expert knowledge, this volume is an interesting insight into the identification of novel compounds from endemic plant sources, and is a useful tool for all researchers involved in the discovery and development of bioactive structures from natural products.

  • Collates key information on the underlying chemistry and activities of bioactive agents from the Boswellia species
  • Highlights techniques applicable to the study of natural products across the globe
  • Provides insights into the assessment of medicinal natural products with high economic potential
