edited by Noboru Motohashi
Bioactive Heterocycles VII: Flavonoids and Anthocyanins in Plants and Latest Bioactive Heterocycles II presents:
- comprehensive and up-to-date reviews on selected
topics concerning mainly the usefulness for human health of flavonoids
and related compounds
- Sophora flavonoids and their functions in Sophora
- the relationship of biological activity with the diverse
structures of heterocycles by quantumchemical calculation
- advances in bioactive
- the spectroscopic properties and application
of bioactive phenothiazines including also benzo[a]phenothiazines
- Anthocyanins as Functional Food Colors presents the structures of flavonoids and anthocyanins and their functions, especially protective activity against age-related
diseases suchashypertension, diabetes, heartdefectsandothers.
- Flavonoids in Sophora Species presents the relationships of diverse Sophora
flavonoids with their functions in Sophora species of Leguminosae,which abundantly
exist in the natural kingdom.
- Quantitative Structure-Cytotoxicity Relationship of
Bioactive Heterocycles by the Semi-empirical Molecular Orbital Method with
the Concept of Absolute Hardness presents the relationship between
the cytotoxicity (defined as 50% cytotoxic concentration) of heterocycles
such as phenoxazine, 5-trifluoromethyloxazoles, O-heterocycles such as 3-
formylchromone and coumarins, and vitamin K2 derivatives against some
tumor cell lines and 15 chemical descriptors.
- The Chemistry of Bioactive Mesoionic Heterocycles presents the
latest developments in the biologically interesting mesoionic compounds,
such as sydnones, sydnonimines, 1,2,3,4-oxatriazolium-5-aminates, and 1,3,4-
thiadiazolium-2-aminides, mainly since 2000.
- Bioactive Phenothiazines and Benzo[a]phenothiazines:
Spectroscopic Studies, Biological and Biomedical Properties and Applications presents recent advances in the spectroscopic, photophysical, photochemical, and analytical studies of bioactive phenothiazines andbenzophenothiazines, including also their biological and biomedical properties,
as well as recent results from the authors of this review chapter.
