Azomethines most widely used organic compounds are like carbonyl compounds in which the >C=O group is replaced by an imine or azomethine group, have been shown to exhibit a broad range of biological activities. Azomethine group is present in various natural-derived, natural and non-natural compounds. In the past years a number of innovations and new techniques have been reported. The biological activity of this class of compounds deserves further investigations. Although the research on this subject is incipient, a number of reports disclosing the effects of the azomethines on the pathogens of clinical interest have recently been increasing. Azomethines have been shown to be promising leads for the design of more efficient antimicrobial agents. Present communication is an attempt to review the reports on the pharmacologically active azomethines synthesized using halogens and cyano moieties.
Keywords: Azomethines, Pharmacological activity, Halogen and Cyanoethyl group.
