This paper summarizes the information gathered for 16 still unpublished exoplanet candidates discovered with the CORALIE echelle spectrograph mounted on the Euler Swiss telescope at La Silla Observatory. Amongst these new candidates, 10 are typical extrasolar Jupiter-like planets on intermediate- or long-period (100 < P $\leq$ 1350 d) and fairly eccentric (0.2 $\leq$ e $\leq$ 0.5) orbits (HD 19994, HD 65216, HD 92788, HD 111232, HD 114386, HD 142415, HD 147513, HD 196050, HD 216437, HD 216770). Two of these stars are in binary systems. The next 3 candidates are shorter-period planets (HD 6434, HD 121504) with lower eccentricities among which we find a hot Jupiter (HD 83443). More interesting cases are given by the multiple-planet systems HD 82943 and HD 169830. The former is a resonant P2/P1 = 2/1 system in which planet-planet interactions are influencing the system evolution. The latter is more hierarchically structured.
