Kurz.” by Kuddus et al., is the fourth volume in the series of books published from our natural product research group.

The biological activity i.e., antioxidant activity and cytotoxicity of the plant have also been discussed. This book is unique in elaboration of spectroscopic data and it will certainly provide practical information to conduct chemical and biological studies with medicinal plants. Moreover, this book will serve as a guide to the fellows in Pharmacy, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Botany, Microbiology and Traditional Systems of Medicines.
