Abstract

The questions of necessity of natural substances classification’s revision are considered in accordance with the modern world level of phytochemistry. Biogenetic dialectical method of approach to the construction of natural substances classification is offered. It is suggested to bring in some of changes and additions into existent classification of natural substances. In particular, in the class «Flavonoids» it is recommended to include subclasses of «Flavonoid-alkaloids» and «Isoprenilated flavonoids»; as an independent class it is suggested to select phenylisoprenoids, plugging into six subclasses: «Phenylethanoids», «Phenylpropanoids», «Phenylbutanoids», «Phenylpentanoids», «Phenylpolyisoprenoids». It is recommended to complement the class «Coumarins» by subclass of «Isocoumarins»; the class «Alkaloids» – by eight subclasses: «Alkaloids with an azepine cycle», «Alkaloids with ring of eight C–atoms», «Pyrrole alkaloids», «Naphthyridine alkaloids», «Oxazole alkaloids», «Peptide alkaloids», «Pyrazole alkaloids», «Quinuclidine alkaloids»; the class «Terpenoids» – by subclass «C35–terpenoids» and «Halogenated acetylene-terpenoids».
