Deceptive curcumin offers cautionary tale for chemists

  1. Jan 13, 2017 #1


    Funny they should say the 'cautionary tale' is 'for chemists', given that the article itself then says:
    'For years, chemists have urged caution about curcumin and other compounds that can mislead naive drug hunters.'

    More in general, I wonder how many natural products are chemically just as ugly as curcumin, but nevertheless do have important applications in therapy.

    How many "natural products" are there at least as ugly as curcumin?
