The species of Deguelia (Papilonoidae Leguminose) genus are recognized for producing polyphenolic secondary metabolities that are predominantly classified as isoflavonoids. The study about the distribution of these secundary metabolities in species of Deguelia genus is very important for understanding the chemosystematic at genus level. Additionally, it has been reported that polyphenolics isolated from Deguelia present many desirable biological effects against human diseases and agricultural pests. Thus, this paper reviewed the occurrence and distribution of polyphenolics in species of Deguelia and evidenced the biological properties of these compounds.
