Recent progress in the synthesis of major constituents of the Amaryllidaceae family is reviewed. Total syntheses of pancratistatin, narciclasine, and their 7-deoxy- derivatives, 7-deoxypancratistatin and lycoricidine, respectively, are covered in detail. Also included are preparations of truncated derivatives and unnatural mimics of pancratistatin. The literature coverage begins with the publication of the last major review in 1996 and is complete through the fall of 2004.
