MNPS Committee


The Malaysian Natural Products Society was founded during the ASOMPS in Malacca in 1994 by the same individuals who had started annual workshops and seminars on natural products in Malaysia since the early 1980’s. The objectives of the Society are

  1. to establish a platform to report findings and promote the sharing of ideas among individuals of various disciplines conducting research in the field of natural products,
  2. to enhance collaboration among individuals and parties advancing the field of natural products.

The annual workshops and seminars had always received financial and technical support from UNESCO and the Ministry of Science, Technology & Environment Malaysia. In the ensuing years, when the task of co-organizing annual workshops and seminars on natural products was undertaken by the Society, the support had continued in a similar manner.

The establishment of the Society has created a better coordination of research and development in the field of natural products in Malaysia. The Society is closely involved with national and international initiatives in natural products, most notable are the Regional Network for the Chemistry of Natural Products and the Asian Coordinating Group for Chemistry.

The Society publishes a newsletter twice a year which are mailed to members. The fee for regular members is RM50 per year and students, RM 10 per year.
