The first review on the origin and chemistry of naturally-occurring isocyanides by Edenborough and Herbert (1) appeared in 1988. In this review the isocyanides, more commonly named as isonitriles (RNC), were divided into non-marine and marine groups. The non-marine isocyanides were divided into xanthocillin-type or cyclopentyltype isocyanides. A few others which did not fit into either category were placed in a miscellaneous section. All isocyanides of marine origin, which had been isolated from sponges and their predators, were sesquiterpenes and diterpenes.
