Cembrane-type diterpenoids are a large and structurally varied group of natural products isolated from both terrestrial and marine organisms. The present paper reviews all the metabolites of cembrane diterpenes, reported up to 2010. The natural products discussed in this review can be divided into several different structural families featuring a variety of ring sizes and oxidation patterns. The currently known biological activities will be presented as well.
