The typical roles and uncomplicated biochemistry of popular plant metabolites are frequently virtually thoroughly misunderstood. The final bankruptcy by way of Pierpoint seems at an instance of those, the salicylates, that are of serious value in clinical study and for his or her medicinal price. Following a precis of the old historical past to their examine and use, the writer considers fresh growth in the direction of knowing their biosynthesis and typical roles within the context in their better-understood pharmacological activities in animals.
