Exhibiting a wealth of interesting activities and novel structures, Boswellic acid and the other terpenoids of the genus Boswellia (from which frankincense is derived) are a growing source of interest for the natural product drug discovery community. Chemistry and Bioactivity of Boswellic Acids and Other Terpenoids of the Genus Boswellia presents, in a single volume for the first time, key research into their structures, synthesis and potential as starting points for the development of medicinal agents.
Drawing on the author s expert knowledge, this volume is an interesting insight into the identification of novel compounds from endemic plant sources, and is a useful tool for all researchers involved in the discovery and development of bioactive structures from natural products.
- Collates key information on the underlying chemistry and activities of bioactive agents from the Boswellia species
- Highlights techniques applicable to the study of natural products across the globe
- Provides an insight into the assessment of medicinal natural products with high economic potential

Following completion of his PhD work on New Transformations of Enantiopure 3,6-Dihydro-2H-1,2-oxazines, he received the Fulbright award in 2008 for postdoctoral research in chemistry. For this, he joined Prof. Tadhg Begely s group at Cornell University where he worked on Synthesis of isotopically-labeled thiamin pyrophosphate.
Ahmed is currently Professor of Organic Chemistry, Assistant Dean for Graduate Studies and Research, and Chair of Oman's Medicinal Plants and Marine Natural Products at the University of Nizwa, Oman. His current research focuses on the discovery of drugs from Omani Medicinal plants as well as on the synthesis of biologically-active compounds. He is an author of more than 80 research papers and has contributed to over 120.
An introduction to the chemistry of Boswellic acids for the development of novel therapeutic agents.
