In this review, we discuss cyclopeptide alkaloids, their plant origin, and the way of separation, spectral analysis done for structure elucidation, stereochemistry, and their biological activities. In addition, we discuss briefly the chemosystematic significance of the cyclopeptide alkaloids based on their discovery in the family Olacaceae.
