Graphical Abstract: This review presents last decade and some past especially relevant studies in the field of (+)-3-carene synthetic transformations. This paper discusses exclusively the transformations of (+)-3-carene, proceeding with the retention of the native bicyclic carbon skeleton. The data concerning the features of epoxidation and oxidation reactions of (+)-3-carene, the synthesis of sulphur- and selenium-containing derivatives and their use in asymmetric synthesis are given. It also describes methods for producing amino derivatives of (+)-3-carene, substituted heterocycles based on it, reactions for the preparation of aziridines, azido-alcohols and azidoamines, as well as chiral phosphites as bidentate ligands.
