A Review on Biological Importance of Hydrazones
Hydrazone derivatives of carbonyl compounds considered to be biologically important class of compounds. Hydrazone nucleus is found in natural and synthetic products of biological interest. Literature studies revealed that hydrazones and various substituted hydrazones are associated with a broad spectrum of biological activities such as antioxidant, antibacterial, antiviral, analgesic, antiplatelet, antimicrobial, and anticancer activities etc. The present review focuses on the different biological activities possessed by hydrazones. Hopefully, this will allow the development of innovative new strategies for the development of novel compounds.
