Triterpenoids isolated and characterized from various sources are reviewed. The newer spectroscopic techniques used in their structure elucidation, the new skeleta characterized, their total chemical synthesis, and their biosynthesis are discussed. A compilation of the triterpenoids isolated during the period 1990-1994 along with their occurrence, physical data, spectroscopy and X-ray analysis used for their characterization, is included. The biological activities of the triterpenoids are also discussed.
