The term “Natural Product” really refers to any naturally occurring substance but is generally taken to mean a secondary metabolite. The secondary metabolites, which are isolated from plants, animals, and microorganisms, etc., are classified as polyketides, isoprenoids, steroids, aromatics, and alkaloids, etc. Research on discovery and synthesis of novel bio-functional natural products is a challenging, expensive, and a time-consuming process. However, research on natural products is still stimulating the development of the separation techniques, spectroscopic approaches to structure elucidation, and synthetic methodologies. Therefore, the chemical diversity and variety of bio-functional properties of natural products still attract the attention of chemists, biochemist, and biologists, etc.

The Research Topic on “Discovery and Total Synthesis of Bio-functional Natural Products from Traditional Medicinal Plants” is intended to offer bio-functional natural products as candidates and/or leads for pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, dietary supplements, cosmetics, and food additives, etc.
In this Research Topic we welcome Review and Original Research articles aimed at improving the knowledge and understanding of synthetic studies of natural products isolated from traditional medicinal plant resources. Areas to be covered in this Research Topic may include, but are not limited to:
i) isolation, structural elucidation of bio-functional natural products;
ii) synthetic studies on bio-functional natural products;
iii) structure-activity relationship studies on bio-functional natural products;
iv) application studies on bio-functional natural products to pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, dietary supplements, cosmetics, and food additives, etc.; and
v) mechanisms of action of bio-functional natural products.


Keywords: natural products chemistry, total synthesis, bioorganic chemistry, isolation and structure determination
