Mohammad Asif* and Mohd. Imran   Pages 1086 - 1097 ( 12 )


Heterocyclic compounds are important because they have almost all types of pharmacological properties. Due to these properties of heterocyclic compounds, they attracted the researchers for the development of more effective newer drug molecules. In this review, we are focused on benzothiazole and its derivatives, which are used for the synthesis of various biologically active molecules. Benzothiazole derivatives have possessed various pharmacological activities like antimicrobial, antiinflammatory, analgesic, anticonvulsant, antiviral, anthelmintic, antioxidant, anticancer, and other anticipated activities. Hence, structural alterations have resulted in different benzothiazole derivatives that illustrated a wide variety of pharmacological activities.


Benzothiazole, biological activities, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antimicrobial, anticancer.
