Lipid‐derived plant hormone jasmonates are implicated in plant growth, reproductive performance, senescence, secondary metabolite productions, and defense against both necrotrophic pathogens and feeding insects. A major jasmonate is (+)‐7‐iso‐jasmonoyl‐L‐isoleucine (JA‐Ile), which is perceived by the unique COI1‐JAZ coreceptor system. Recent advances in plant chemical biology have greatly informed the bioscience of jasmonate, including the development of chemical tools such as the antagonist COR‐MO; the agonist NOPh; and newly developed jasmonates, including JA‐Ile‐macrolactone and 12‐OH‐JA‐Ile. This review article summarizes the current status of plant chemical biology as it pertains to jasmonates, and offers some perspectives for the future.
