Natural Products Chemistry is a sub-branch of chemistry that mainly focuses on the identification of bioactive natural products from herbals, marine plants, or microorganism. Natural Products Chemistry & Research is an open access peer-reviewed international journal that publishes articles related to all the aspects of natural products. The current issue (volume No 4, issue 4) published two full-reviews, one mini review, and five research articles.
In one of the research articles, Sharma et al. reported activities evaluation of the extracts of different parts of Tinospora cordifolia . Another research article that published by Williams et al. reported the antioxidant activity of Leonotis nepetifolia extracts in protecting APAP-induced hepatic injuries and its role in modulating the antioxidant enzyme activities. In this article, the authors found that the anti-oxidative efficacy of the above extract is related to free radical scavengers, which reduces the super oxide dismutase activity . In Alberto’s research article, the authors evaluated potential activity of some traditional medicinal plants in the genus of Rumexspp . Another article reported by Ali was trying to optimize the dyeing and extraction conditions of marigold colorant by using a central composite design approach. The last research article published by Ijeh reported the amino acid and nutritional profile of wild Termitomycesrobustus [4,5].
For the review articles, Rehman et al. discussed the importance of aromatic plants in synthesizing essential oils  and Fazary et al. analyzed the survey outcome of bioactive Lignans on their chemical Structures . Finally, Getasetegn et al. discussed the valuable compounds and their biological activities present in some Medicinal Plants .
