Author(s): Abbas Al-Mulla

Heterocyclic compounds constitute the largest and most varied family of organic compounds. Today there are a lot of heterocyclic compounds are known, day by day the number is increasing rapidly due to the enormous synthetic research and also their synthetic utility. Heterocyclic compounds have a role in most fields of sciences such as medicinal chemistry, biochemistry also another area of sciences. In this review, we cover most biological active heterocyclic compounds that it’s recently synthesized or extracted from the plants such as antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antioxidants, anticonvulsant, antiallergic, herbicidal and anticancer.
