Kaurane diterpenoid - Steroid - Cyclic alcohol - Secondary alcohol - Carboxylic acid ester - Monocarboxylic acid or derivatives - Carboxylic acid derivative - Organic oxygen compound - Organic oxide - Hydrocarbon derivative - Organooxygen compound - Carbonyl group - Alcohol - Aliphatic homopolycyclic compound
This compound belongs to the class of organic compounds known as kaurane diterpenoids. These are diterpene alkaloids with a structure that is based on the kaurane skeleton. Kaurane is a tetracyclic compound that arises by cyclisation of a pimarane precursor followed by rearrangement. It possesses a [3,2,1]-bicyclic ring system with C15-C16 bridge connected to C13, forming the five-membered ring D.
