FromArtemisiaannua L. to Artemisinins: The Discovery and Development of Artemisinins and Antimalarial Agentsis the first book that systematically introduces the origin and development of artemisinine and artemisinine-based drugs. It includes four distinct sections, including Artemisia annua L., Artemisinin, Dihydroartemisinin, and other artemisinin derivatives. Tu Youyou, the chief inventor of artemisinin, together with other members from the research team, have written a book that will be a valuable reference work for both researchers involved in the medical industry and scholars who are interested in undertaking innovative research.

  • Presents a full view of artemisinin, not only its origin and development, but also chemical structure, chemical properties, extracting mode, derivatives, chromogenic reaction, general pharmacological, and toxicology.
  • Provides many aspects of artemisinin-based drugs
  • Incudes lots of experimental data, such as the X-ray crystallography result-the first application reported in China in determining the absolute molecular configuration utilizing the scattering effects of oxygen atoms by X-ray diffraction technique

About The Author

Tu Youyou (`\fTfT, born 30 December 1930) is a Chinese pharmaceutical chemist and educator. She is best known for discovering artemisinin (also known as Qinghaosu) and dihydroartemisinin, used to treatmalaria, which saved millions of lives. Her discovery of artemisinin and its treatment of malaria is regarded as a significant breakthro...
