2-Styrylchromones (2-SC) are chromone derivatives characterized by the attachment of a styryl group to the 2- position of the chromone structure. The 2-styrylchromone structure has been demonstrated to bear important biological activities such as antiallergic, antitumor, affinity and selectivity for A3 adenosine receptors, antiviral, antioxidant and antiinflammatory. The aim of the present paper was to review the available information on this field.
