Abstract
This review describes the recent works on anti-tumor constituent from famil y Annonaceae plants in our laboratory. About 50 new Annonaceous acetogenins , 12 new styrylpyrones and 25 new polyoxygenated cyclohexenes were isolated from 5 Uvaria species, 4 Goniothalamus species and 1 species of Annona. Th e structure and stereochemistry of new compounds were determined by means o f spectral analysis and chemical reactions as well as X-ray diffractions in few cases. Preliminary bioassay tests showed most of the new isolates exhi bit significant anti-tumor activities.
