Abstract: Many of the medicinal products available today are derived from secondary metabolites. Plants remain the main source of such therapeutic agents but other sources are being explored and exploited. New and old technologies are being applied in the continuing quest of finding useful secondary metabolites of plant origin or otherwise from which newer drugs can be made.
