An Update on Secondary Metabolites from Glycyrrhiza Species

Azizuddin Shaikh


Secondary metabolites have been obtained from the Glycyrrhiza species (Fabaceae) including G. glabra, G. echinata, G. uralensis, G. triphylla and G. macedonica. These compounds 1-25 belong to the classes, steroid, saponin, flavonoid, flavonoid glycoside, triterpenic acid, coumarin, phenolic derivative, chalcone and chalcone glycoside. This review will describe the isolated compounds 1-25, obtained from Glycyrrhiza species with their biological activities up to 1966.
