A natural compound is a chemical compound or substance produced by a living organism —that is, found in nature. Natural products can also be prepared by chemical synthesis (both semisynthesis and total synthesis) and have played a central role in the development of the field of organic chemistry by providing challenging synthetic targets.
Within the field of organic chemistry, the definition of natural compounds is usually restricted to mean purified organic compounds isolated from natural sources that are produced by the pathways of primary or secondary metabolism.
Long before the era of high-throughput screening and genomics, drug discovery relied heavily on natural compounds. In fact, many of the drugs available today contain active ingredients extracted from natural products. natural compound drug discovery programs continue to play a significant role in the clinical development of new therapies in the biopharmaceutical industry.
