Abstract

The genus Tephrosia, belonging to the Leguminosae family, is a large pantropical genus of more than 350 species, many of which have important traditional uses in agriculture. This review not only outlines the source, chemistry and biological evaluations of natural products from the genus Tephrosia worldwide that have appeared in literature from 1910 to December 2013, but also covers work related to proposed biosynthetic pathways and synthesis of some natural products from the genus Tephrosia, with 105 citations and 168 new compounds.
Keywords: Tephrosia; chemical constituents; proposed biosynthetic pathways; synthesis; biological activity Tephrosia; chemical constituents; proposed biosynthetic pathways; synthesis; biological activity
