Overview

In laboratories around the world the active principles in traditional herbal medicines are being isolated and characterized. A systematic effort at the Chinese Academy of Sciences is underway to identify the structure-activity relationships that result from the link between chemistry and medicine that is permitted by this data. This book, which provides the only systematic English-language description of the chemical structures and pharmacological effects of compounds active in traditional Chinese medicines (TCMs), is now in its second edition. The new edition provides English-language monographs on over 9000 chemicals isolated from nearly 4000 natural sources used in Chinese medicine and features the addition of in-depth bioactivity data for many of the compounds. Effects and indications of the medicines are included. Extensive indexing permits cross-referencing among English, Chinese and Latin names for natural medicinal sources, effects and indications, and the chemical components of the medicines. The second edition of Traditional Chinese Medicines includes 2300 new compounds, 2400 additional plant sources, more CAS Registry Numbers, and more pharmacological data. The structure of the book has been extensively reorganised to make cross referencing the data much simpler. This new edition is therefore a substantial improvement on the first edition of this important reference on the structural chemistry of traditional Chinese medicines.

Meet the Author

Jiaju Zhou, Professor, Institute of Process Engineering,Chinese Academy of Sciences, graduated from the Department ofChemistry (a six-year program), Peking University in 1963. He is anorganic and computational chemist who has spent many years studyingthe chemical composition of plants used medicinally in China. Hehas worked for extended periods at the National Institute ofStandards and Technology, USA, where he became expert in chemicaldata systems. He has worked as a visiting scholar at the Universityof British Columbia, Canada and Marseilles University, France.

Guirong Xie graduated from the chemistry department ofShandong University, Jinan, China in 1965. Since then she hasworked as a physical chemist in the Institute of ProcessEngineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences. As a visiting scholar,she worked for one year in the USA at the National Institute ofStandards and Technology where she developed several metallurgicsamples that were awarded certification as standard referencematerials. Since 1990 she has focused on computer-aided moleculardesign and databases relating to the structure and activity ofcompounds.

Xinjian Yan, graduated from the Department of Chemistry,Peking University in 1978, and received a PhD from the Institute ofProcess Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1991. Heconducted molecular modeling as postdoctoral fellow at theInstitute of Cancer, National Institutes of Health from 1992 to1995 and the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Universityof Texas at Austin from 1995 to 1996. He studied traditionalChinese medicine at the Laboratory of Computer Chemistry, ChineseAcademy of Sciences from 1996 to 1999. Since 1999, he has beenworking at Texas University at College Station.

The Editor
G W A Milne served 36 years as a research chemist at theNational Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD, USA. Here he workedon the use of spectroscopy for structure determination of organiccompounds, and on molecular modeling in the design of drugs for thetreatment of cancer and AIDS. He has been active for many years inthe fields of chemical information and chemical computation, and isthe Editor of the American Chemical Society's Journal ofChemical Information and Computer Sciences and Gardner'sChemical Synonyms and Trade Names, Eleventh Edition(Ashgate). In 1999, jointly with Stephen Heller, Dr Milne wasawarded the Skolnik Award of the Chemical Information Division ofthe American Chemical Society.
