Role of Nitrogen-Containing Natural Heterocyclic Compounds in Medical Science : A Mini Review

Authors(3) :-Narendra Nirwan, Chandresh Pareek, Anil Chohadia

Heterocyclic compounds constitute the largest and most varied family of organic compounds. Nitrogen-containing heterocyclic compounds are an important class of heterocyclic compounds that have paid the significant contribution towards medicinal chemistry, biochemistry, material science and also another area of science. N-heterocycles show a large number of biological activities such as antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antioxidant, anticonvulsant, antiallergic, enzyme inhibitors, herbicidal, anti-HIV, antidiabetic, anticancer, insecticidal etc. This paper reviews the most biological active N-heterocyclic compounds which were synthesized or extracted from the plants.
