This article represents a mini-review dedicated to chalcone derivatives with antimycobacterial activity. Natural and synthetic chlacones are reviewed. General and specific schemes of synthesis of chalchone derivatives are presented. QSAR and docking studies of certain chalcones are analyzed in respect of their antimycobacterial activity and inhibition of Mycobacterium tuberculosis enzymes.
