Secondary Metabolites from Bolivian Plants- Isolation and Characterization

University dissertation from Lund University

Abstract: Popular Abstract in English Plants produce an array of organic chemicals with an enormous diversity of structural types. Many of these phytochemicals are biologically active compounds necessary for the well-being, survival, and evolution of the plants, but also have been used by humans, who have used them in traditional medicine and for pharmaceutical industry. During the course of this research, the natural products isolated from four endemic or medicinal plant species of Bolivia are presented, as well as the techniques and processes through which have been isolated and identified. It also contains the biological activities reported in the literature.
