Jagmohan S. Negi, V.K. Bisht, Arvind K. Bhandari, M.K. Bharti and R.C. Sundriyal

Abstract:
The genus Toona belongs to family Meliaceae is a group of traditionally important medicinal plants. Toona is commonly known as toon, the leaves, barks and roots of toon is commonly used as herbal medicine and also as timber. Extensive research works have been carried out on chemical constituents and biological activities of the genus Toona. In this review, we summarize previous and current information regarding chemical constituents and biological activities of the genus Toona and provide new insights for future study in this discipline. This study shows that Toona species posses several biological activities mainly due to the presence of coumarins, flavonoids, phytosterol, phenols, tenins, alkaloids, triterpenes and anthraquinons.
