A review of the genus Caesalpinia L.: emphasis on the cassane and norcassane compounds and cytotoxicity effects
TLDR
Present study show that Caesalpinia genus has valuable cytotoxic activity but further studies are needed to investigate the active components and their possible development as new anticancer drugs.
Naturally occurring furanoditerpenoids: distribution, chemistry and their pharmacological activities
TLDR
This review covers the distribution, phytochemistry, synthesis and pharmacological activities of furanoditerpenoids, describing 444 compounds, and suggests that these plants are widely used in traditional medicines and have therefore been disclosed with a wide range of bioactivities including anti-cancer, anti-inflammation and anti-microorganism.

Cassane furanoditerpenoids from the seed kernels of Caesalpinia bonduc from Thailand.
TLDR
Three new cassane furanoditerpenoids were isolated from the EtOAc extract of the seed kernels of Caesalpinia bonduc and exhibited good antimalarial activity against the multidrug-resistant K1 strain of Plasmodium falciparum, while compound 4 was inactive.
Caesalpins A-H, bioactive cassane-type diterpenes from the seeds of Caesalpinia minax.
TLDR
Eight new cassane-type diterpenes, caesalpins A-H (1-8), were isolated from the ethyl acetate extract of Caesalpinia minax, and compounds 2 and 4 exhibited selective cytotoxic activities against MCF-7 and AGS cells.
Constituents of Caesalpinia crista from Indonesia.
TLDR
Among the isolated compounds, caesalpinin N (7) represents the first example of furanocassane-type diterpene possessing an aldehyde group at C-14, and is determined based on the spectroscopic analysis.
New furanoid diterpenes from Caesalpinia pulcherrima.
TLDR
Four new cassane-type furanoditerpenoids (1-4) were isolated from the air-dried leaves of Caesalpinia pulcherrima and indicated that they were active against several bacteria and fungi.

Cassane- and norcassane-type diterpenes of Caesalpinia crista from Myanmar.
TLDR
Five new cassane-type diterpenes, caesalpinins MA-ME (1-5), and three new norcassane- type diter penes, norcaesalpins MA-MC (6-8), have been isolated from seed kernels of Caesal Pinia crista from Myanmar.
