Humans, animals and plants have been existing on the earth since time immemorial. Plants are the greatest organic chemists of the earth. In the laboratory of nature, they carry out complex organic syntheses with ease to manufacture complicated chemical compounds with an amazing degree of accuracy, structures and characteristics. The different properties of the plants and their products are due to the presence of chemical compounds in them. A number of compounds belonging to different classes have already been isolated and characterized. The aim of this book is to provide a simple, concise and collective description about the isolation and characterization of chemical compounds from the different parts of the plants. This book will be immensely useful to students, researchers, academicians, scientists, industrialists, and the people who are interested in the field of phytochemistry.

• Provides a brief description of the main classes of secondary metabolites isolated from the different parts of the plants.
• Describes the basic information about the chromatography which is being used for isolating of pure chemical compounds from the mixture of compounds present in the plants extractives.
• Basic information about the infrared spectroscopy (IR), ultraviolet spectroscopy (UV), nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR), and mass spectroscopy (MS) used in the structure elucidation of pure compounds.
• General methods for isolation and structure elucidation of chemical compounds from the different parts of the plant species.
• Brief description about the isolation and structure elucidation of chemical constituents from 29 plants species have been described. About 104 pure chemical compounds were isolated using various separation techniques (CC, TLC, PC, HPLC) and characterized using their spectral data (IR, UV,1HNMR,13CNMR, 2DNMR and MS). The structures of the compounds have been given.
• Essential oils, methods of isolation and characterization of essential oils from the different parts of 14 plant species are given. About 74 chemical compounds mainly monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes were identified in the different essential oils by GC-MS. The structures of the major constituents (22) have been given.
• Fatty oils, isolation and characterization of fatty oils from the seeds of 7 plant species have been given. Thirteen fatty acids were identified in the different fatty oils by GLC.

Rameshwar Dayal :- obtained his B.Sc (1969) from Delhi University, M.Sc (1971) from Kurukshetra University, and PhD (1976) from Delhi University, specializing in the field of natural products chemistry. Dr Dayal joined Forest Research Institute, Dehra Dun (1977) as Research Officer, and worked there in various positions, and superannuated as Scientist-F and Head, Chemistry Division, Forest Research Institute, Dehra Dun in August, 2009.  He has about 38 years of research experience in the field of natural products chemistry. Dr. Dayal disseminated his research work through 90 research papers published in several national and foreign journals, presentation of a large number of research papers in several national and international conferences/symposia/workshops/seminars, a number of technical reports, six patents and transfer of three technologies to the entrepreneurs.  He supervised ten students for the award of PhD degree. He was conferred Vishist Vaigyanik Purskar award (1999-2000) of the Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India, for his outstanding contribution in the field of "Phytochemistry of Forest Trees", ICFRE- Cash Award of Indian Council of Forestry Research and Education, Dehra Dun (1998-99) for outstanding contribution to research in the field of "Forest Utilization", letter of appreciation from Director General, ICFRE for award of Vishist Vaigyanik Purskar, and Incentive Cash Award (1998) from National Research Development Corporation. He has also authored Natural Dyes (published by IK International in 2015).
