Total Synthesis of Natural Products Existence in Fruits and Vegetables
This book chapter scrutinizes the total synthesis of natural products extricate from fruits and vegetables and its biological activities allied to certain diseases. Generally, natural products are extricated from plants and their products. Which render nutrition, phytochemicals, vitamins, fibers, and minerals etc.., these are manifest numerous biological activities such as antioxidant, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antifungal activity etc., hostile to chronic diseases like cancer, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, arthritis, and asthma etc., at a certain level, and gift with good health. Natural products are present in the free form or associated with glycosides in little quantity, sometimes difficult to isolated in pure form. Therefore, total synthesis plays a major role in the current engrossment, synthesis and its study allied to biological activities.
