This volume provides a fundamental overview of the current state of the art in natural products from marine algae, linking the complex and diverse natural resource with recent developments in extraction, analytical and bioactivity testing methodologies. Natural Products from Marine Algae: Methods and Protocols guides readers through protocols and techniques on algal biotechnology, metabolites, Solid-Liquid Extraction (SLE), Microwave Assisted Extraction (MAE), Liquid Chromatography, Gas Chromatography, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy, Infra-red spectroscopy and Raman Spectroscopy. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Authoritative and cutting-edge, Natural Products from Marine Algae: Methods and Protocols hopes to aid scientists unravel and quantify algal chemical diversity and support further marine biotechnological developments.
