Hydrazones Research Paper

Decent Essays
Hydrazones and their derivatives constitute a versatile class of compounds in organic chemistry. These compounds have interesting biological properties, such as anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anticonvulsant, antituberculous, antitumor, anti-HIV and antimicrobial activity. Hydrazones are important compounds for drug design, as possible ligands for metal complexes, organocatalysis and also for the syntheses of heterocyclic compounds. The ease of preparation, increased hydrolytic stability relative to imines, and tendency toward crystallinity are all desirable characteristics of hydrazones. Due to these positive traits, hydrazones have been under study for a long time, but much of their basic chemistry remains unexplored. N-Acylhydrazones (NAHs),
