Abstract


The present minireview concerns the application of cyclic isothiourea moiety (with endocyclic sulfur atom) in drug design and includes the examples of bioisosteric replacement, conformational restriction, etc. The synthetic procedures leading to the target structures of cyclic isothioureas and their bicyclic derivatives are also discussed. The review gives multiple useful examples for the chemists searching novel heterocyclic compounds with neuroprotective, antihypotensive, antiproliferative, antiobestic, and analgetic properties.

Keywords
