Planta Medica Special Issue for Prof. Wolfgang Kubelka
Thanks to the initiative of the editor-in-chief Robert Fürst a special issue of Planta Medica could be dedicated to Prof. Wolfgang Kubelka on the occasion of the 85th birthday.
Upon invitation by the guest editors Elke Heiss and Liselotte Krenn numerous colleagues and former students of Prof. Kubelka from several countries happily contributed papers. The issue was handed over to Prof. Kubelka after a short virtual celebration with the editorial board.
The resulting issue 15 of Planta Medica was published in October 2020 and contains two reviews and 10 original paper dealing with natural products´ biological and pharmacological activities as well as with chemical and analytical studies.
