Unusually cyclized triterpenes: occurrence, biosynthesis and chemical synthesis.

The biosynthetic origin of most of triterpenes lies in cascade cyclizations and rearrangements of the acyclic precursors squalene (S) and 2,3-oxidosqualene (OS), processes leading to tetra- and

Plant-derived triterpenoid biomarkers and their applications in paleoenvironmental reconstructions : chemotaxonomy , geological alteration , and vegetation reconstruction

Triterpenoids and their derivatives are ubiquitous in sediment samples. Land plants are major sources of nonhopanoid triterpenoids; these terpenoids comprise a vast number of chemotaxonomically
