Taxanes and derivatives
Aliphatic homopolycyclic compounds
Taxane diterpenoid - Organic oxygen compound - Hydrocarbon derivative - Organooxygen compound - Aliphatic homopolycyclic compound
This compound belongs to the class of organic compounds known as taxanes and derivatives. These are diterpenoids with a structure based either on the taxane skeleton, or a derivative thereof. In term of phytochemistry, several derivatives of the taxane skeleton exist: 2(3->20)-abeotaxane, 3,11-cyclotaxane, 11(15->1),11(10->9)-abeotaxane, 3,8-seco-taxane, and 11(15->1)-abeotaxane, among others. More complex skeletons have been found recently, which include the taxane-derived [3.3.3] propellane ring system.
