Cyclic imide derivatives: As promising scaffold for the synthesis of antimicrobial agents

Farshid Hassanzadeh, Elham Jafari


Cyclic imides as building blocks in the synthesis of natural products, drugs and polymers display a diverse of pharmacological activities such as antibacterial, antifungal, anticonvulsant, anticancer, and anti-inflammatory effects. This review summarizes recent findings on antimicrobial activities of cyclic imide derivatives and emphasis on the importance of cyclic imides for drug design and development of new antimicrobial compounds.
