Advances in chemistry of chromone aminomethyl derivatives

Galyna P. Mrug, Mykhaylo S. Frasinyuk


Chromones play an important role in the design and discovery of new pharmacologically active compounds. A large volume of reports dedicated to synthesis and study of properties of nitrogen-containing chromone derivatives show important role of chromone alkaloid-like compounds. The present review covers achievements in the field of synthesis of chromone aminomethyl derivatives as one of perspective scaffolds.
