What is it about?

This is a review article. Now a days it is a mandate for chemists to look after safer chemicals. The nature produces thousands of chemicals. It is the time to search how nature synthesises these chemicals and to use the nature resourced chemicals as an alternative for synthetic chemicals. In this review in particular some radiochemical experiments have been described with nature resourced chemicals but it is in general applicable to general chemistry also.

Why is it important?

This review shows that nature resourced chemistry is within the mandate of green chemistry and a step forward for environmental protection.
