Natural products continue to be an inspiring field of research and an important source of potent biologically active compounds. Currently, also in the pharmaceutical industry, natural products are experiencing a revival as viable drug candidates, which is a pleasing development since many infectious diseases continue to threaten human health. From the numerous articles in daily newspapers, it is obvious that politicians have also realised the urgent need for new drugs and the potential associated with natural products and their derivatives. Certainly, the recent technological advances in many fields related to natural products, analytical chemistry, gene synthesis, and genome sequencing and editing offer an efficient toolbox to natural products chemists. In addition, classical methods such as isotopic labelling experiments continue to be important.
