This review describes the various manifestations of the pyrimidine system (alkylated, glycosylated, benzo‐annelated.). These comprise pyrimidine nucleosides as well as alkaloids and antibiotics – some of them have been discovered and isolated from natural sources already long time ago, others have been reported very recently. A short overview on pyrimidine syntheses (prebiotic synthesis, biosynthesis, and metabolism) is given. The biological activities of most of the pyrimidine analogs are… 

Synthesis of pyrimidine-containing alkaloids.

Synthesis of Some Novel Chromenopyrimidine Derivatives and Evaluation of Their Biological Activities

A series of chromenopyrimidine derivatives were synthesized by reaction of an intermediate imine and ammonia derivatives in good to high yields and the antibacterial activity of these compounds was investigated against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia Coli.

Pyrimidine and Its Biological Activity: A Review

The present reviews attempted to gather the various biological activities of pyrimidine derivatives and is marketed drugs.

Synthesis, Characterization and Anti-inflammatory Activity of New Pyrimidines

The synthesis of some pyrimidine derivatives was achieved by conden-sation of 2-hydroxyacetophenone and cinnamic acid as starting materials through 1,3-diketones as intermediates. The resulting

Synthesis, reactions, and applications of pyrimidine derivatives

Pyrimidine compounds continue to attract great interest in the field of organic synthesis due to their various chemical and biological applications observed, especially in recent times. As a result,

Exploration of the chemistry and biological properties of pyrimidine as a privileged pharmacophore in therapeutics

This present work deals with the exploration of chemistry and medicinal diversity of pyrimidine which might pave way to long await discovery in therapeutic medicine for future drug design.
