Natural Products

A natural product is a chemical compound or substance produced by a living organism-that is, found in nature. In the broadest sense, natural products include any substance produced by life. Natural products are mainly obtained by separation, and they can also be prepared by chemical synthesis (both semisynthesis and total synthesis) and have played a central role in the development of the field of organic chemistry by providing challenging synthetic targets. Natural products have the characteristics of diverse structures and wide sources, so they have high value in the prevention and treatment of diseases. They have become an important source of leading compounds in the search for innovative drugs. In recent years, natural products are more and more widely used in the fields of food, cosmetics and health products, showing high application value.

The structural diversity of natural products and their easy binding with biomacromolecules determine their incomparable advantages in the process of life regulation and endue natural products with an irreplaceable important position in the research and development of new drugs. Natural products and their molecular frameworks are the main sources of new drugs, in fact, about two-thirds of all drugs approved between 1981 and 2019 are, at different extents, related to natural products.
