Terpenes are very bioactive natural products. Terpenes are commonly found in extracts from plants, animals, and microorganisms, mainly in essential oils and oleoresins. Several bioactive terpenes, such as taxol, cannabidiol, resinous diterpenoids, sesquiterpene lactones, limonene, pinenes, and betulinic acid, have been studied to clarify their mechanism of action. Besides, studies have been conducted to enable their production at large scale, the development of their formulations, and the generation of these bioproducts. This Special Issue of Biomolecules presents several papers and review articles focused on the biological assessment of terpenes, upscaling the isolation and concentration of bioactive terpenes and the formulation strategies, mainly using nanotechnological approaches
