Abstract :
Terpenoids are a large and structurally group of natural products containing multiple five carbon containing isoprene units. In the current studies, detailed computations have been carried out with 120 naturally occurring mono- (C10), sesqui- (C15), di- (C20), sester- (C25), sesqua- (C35) and tetra- (C40) terpenoids using Gaussian 09 software with with Gauss view 07 and molecular mechanics calculation using Serena software.
