FIGURE 4.1 Phenylpropanoids (compounds 1-12)

The primary review (Dictionary of Natural Products 1996) indicates that Illicium is rich in prenylated C6-C3 compounds (phenylpropanoid), neolignans, and sesquiterpenes in addition to several common flavonoids, diterpenoids, and triterpenoids. This chapter is intended to be a survey of the literature that reported chemical constituents obtained from plants of the genus Illicium during the period, 1965-1999, with the exception of the components of their essential oil.
