Unusual metabolites from some Tanzanian indigenous plant species
Abstract: In this paper, the chemistry of some unusual natural products that were isolated from various Tanzanian indigenous plant species during the past 20 years is reviewed. Among the compounds covered in this review are cyclohexane epoxides; heptane derivatives; oxygenated pyrenes; phenanthrene derivatives; flavonoids with uncommon structural frameworks; mono-, bis-, and dimeric prenylated indoles; and variously substituted mono-, sesqui-, and diterpenoids.
