Abstract :
In this review, we have discussed the isolation of seven terpenoids from plants and their self-assembly properties in different liquids, even without functional transformation. The utilization of the resulting supramolecular architectures such as vesicles, spheres, flowers and fibrillar networks of nano- to micro-meter dimensions and gels have also been discussed paving the way for a green, renewable and sustainable world.
