Meliaceae is a family of woody tropical plants comprising approximately 50 genera and a total of 500-550 species. Chemically, the family Meliaceae is characterized by its biosynthesis of limonoids, which are modified triterpenes with or derived from a precursor with a 4,4,8-trimethyl-17-furanyl steroid skeleton [8,9]. Over 300 limonoids have been isolated to date, and they are more diverse and abundant in Meliaceae than in any other family.
