Sesquiterpene quinones and hydroquinones obtained from the marine sponge Dysidea sp. with avarane skeleton are classified into three categories based on the differences of the bond connecting the quinone/hydroquinone unit and the sesquiterpene unit. The reported synthetic methods for these three types of natural products are reviewed in detail based on their key synthetic strategies with the aim of assisting in the synthesis of other natural products.

Key words: sesquiterpene quinone/hydroquinone, marine sponge Dysidea sp., avarane skeleton, synthetic strategy
