Focusing on biosynthesis, this book provides readers with approaches and methodologies for modern organic synthesis. By discussing major biosynthetic pathways and their chemical reactions, transformations, and natural products applications; it links biosynthetic mechanisms and more efficient total synthesis.

• Describes four major biosynthetic pathways (acetate, mevalonate, shikimic acid, and mixed pathways and alkaloids) and their related mechanisms
• Covers reactions, tactics, and strategies for chemical transformations, linking biosynthetic processes and total synthesis
• Includes strategies for optimal synthetic plans and introduces a modern molecular approach to natural product synthesis and applications
• Acts as a key reference for industry and academic readers looking to advance knowledge in classical total synthesis, organic synthesis, and future directions in the field
