Non-monoterpenoid azepinoindole alkaloids
Covering: 1969 to 2018
Azepinoindole natural products can be broadly classified as being of monoterpenoid or non-monoterpenoid origin. The non-monoterpenoid azepinoindoles have not received as much attention in the literature as their more revered monoterpenoid counterparts. In this review, an overview of all non-monoterpenoid azepinoindoles is provided. Various biological and chemical aspects are discussed, including their isolation, biosynthesis and the elegant total synthesis studies that have been inspired by these alkaloids.
