Jiadifenolide, a new seco-prezizaane-type sesquiterpenoid, was isolated from Chinese unique medicine Illicium jiadifengpi. It contains a highly oxygenated cagelike architecture with seven contiguous stereocenters. It displays potent neurotrophic activity at very low concentration and is regarded as a promising lead compound for developing drugs for neurodegenerative diseases. This review summarizes the synthetic efforts towards jiadifenolide in the last five years.

Key words: jiadifenolide, seco-prezizaane-type sesquiterpenoid, neurotrophic agent, neurodegenerative diseases, total synthesis
