Chemical synthesis of hormones, pheromones, and other bioregulators / Kenji Mori. - First Edition - xiv, 299 pages cm.

Includes bibliographical references and index.

Introduction : biofunctional molecules and organic synthesis -- Synthesis of phytohormones, phytoalexins, and other biofunctional molecules of plant origin -- Synthesis of insect bioregulators other than pheromones -- Synthesis of pheromones -- Synthesis of biofunctional molecules of microbial origin -- Synthesis of marine bioregulators, medicinals and related compounds -- Synthetic examination of incorrectly proposed structures of biomolecules -- Conclusion : science as a human endeavor.

Many small molecules occur naturally as ""messenger"" chemicals which regulate the behaviour and functions of microbes, plants, insects and animals. Examples include hormones, pheromones, phytoalexins, and antifeedants. These biofunctional molecules are of great interest to researchers in helping develop our understanding of biological function and in the development of new drugs.
