Author affiliations


Covering: February 2008 to May 2014. Previous review: Nat. Prod. Rep., 2008, 25, 871–891

Several significant advances in the field of phytochemistry were made between 2008 and 2014 because of the high level of interest in Schisandraceae triterpenoids. In addition to a dramatic increase in the number of newly identified triterpenoids, the first complete synthesis of a schinortriterpenoid was accomplished. There has also been substantial progress in investigations of biological activity and mechanism of action. In this update, we review more than 250 new triterpenoids and describe their structures, classifications, biogenetic pathways, syntheses, and bioactivities.
