    Phytochemistry Book Chapter Contribution

    Dear Colleagues,


    I invite you to join me in this project. Its an international book project open to everyone across the world. Currently, about 10 international collaborators have indicated interest. You can find our progress report via this researchgate link. This
    project was initiated this month (August, 2017) and planned to span a period of six months. The book will be published online and anyone can order for it. Contributing authors will retain the right to use, reuse, distribute, rent or lend.

    If you are interested, kindly email me at egbuna.cg@coou.edu.ng on topic you wish to write on. NB: You can find from a list of topics on our reserchgate project centre.
