Pyrimidine Derivatives as Potential Agents Acting on Central Nervous System
Pyrimidine and its derivatives are present in many of the bioactive aromatic compounds that are of
wide interest because of their diverse biological and clinical applications. The utility of pyrimidines as
synthon for various biologically active compounds has given impetus to these studies. The review article aims
to review the work reported on pharmacological activities of central nervous system (CNS) such as
anticonvulsant and antidepressant, which created interest among researchers to synthesize variety of
pyrimidine and their derivatives. The present study shows, objective of the work can be summarized as
pyrimidine derivative constitute an important class of compounds for new drug development. These observations have
been given novel idea for the development of new pyrimidine derivative that possess varied biological activities. This
article aims to review the recent works on pyrimidine moiety together with the biological potential during the past year.
Keywords: Bioactive aromatic compounds, CNS activities, pyrimidine derivatives.
