Chiral chemodiversity and its role for biological activity . Some observations from studies on i nsect / i nsect and insect / plant relationships


Abstract: Many compounds occur in Nature in both enantiomeric forms. This chiral chemodiversity is common among certain classes of natural products whereas other classes of compounds usually occur in only one of the enantiomeric forms. Thus triterpenoids and steroids belong to the same enantiomeric family. On the other hand, many of the lower terpenoids… (More)
