Recent progress in the synthesis of limonoids and limonoid-like natural products
Limonoid and limonoid-like natural products have demonstrated diverse bioactive properties and attracted considerable synthetic efforts. They provide a good platform to examine the viability of methodologies in the efficient construction of complex skeletons. In this review, we have discussed the recent progress in the syntheses of limonoids and limonoid-like natural products, covering from January 2011 to March 2020. The key transformations are highlighted. Finally, we summarize current “state-of-art” advance on novel synthetic strategy in syntheses of linonoids and limonoid-like molecules. Besides, future outlook are also presented.
