About the author: Hiromichi Nagasawa is a Professor Emeritus of the University of Tokyo.

  This book aims at focusing on chemistry of organic compounds controlling the body of organisms in minute quantities in various ways, so-called “bioactive compounds”. Bioactive compounds are important not only as key compounds in life but also as basic compounds for direct application to medicines and agrochemicals. As indicated in Appendix, a number of bioactive compounds have been good targets for Nobel Prize (chemistry and medicine). This means that the discovery of important compounds was highly evaluated and such compounds contributed to the development of science.
  This book was written in order for students to be able to learn with interest about bioorganic chemistry focusing on bioactive compounds, according to my lecture notebooks. The content of this book consists of the following four chapters. In Chapter 1, the origin of natural organic compounds and purification methods of some representative bioactive compounds are described. In Chapter 2, bioactive compounds are classified from the view of biosynthesis. In Chapters 3 and 4, endogenous and exogenous bioactive compounds, respectively, are classified by the point of function and their chemistry and explained.
