Graphical Abstract:
 A review of diterpenoid cyclization initiated by electrophilic reagents is provided. Conventional protonic and Lewis acids are examined along with superacids as initiators of cyclization cascade. An emphasis is placed on the use of cyclization reactions as a tool for the synthesis of compounds with potential practical utility. The review contains 74 references.
