Marine isocyanides and related natural products – structure, biosynthesis and ecology
Covering: up to mid 2003. Previous review: Nat. Prod. Rep., 1988, 5, 229
This review highlights structural and biosynthetic work on a group of nitrogen-functionalised terpenes that are almost exclusively found in marine invertebrates and the animals that feed on them. The chemical functionality reviewed includes isocyanides, isothiocyanates, formamides, thiocyanates, isocyanates, and dichloroimines. The literature through mid 2003 is reviewed and there are 143 citations.
