Furan, which is made from furfural, is a heterocyclic organic compound, consisting of a five-membered aromatic ring with four carbon atoms and one oxygen. The class of compounds containing such rings are also referred to as furans.
May 2014 - Asian J of Biosciences: Furan a five membered heterocycles has been found with enormous biological activities with the suitable modifications in the structure. The present review is an attempt made to direct the attention of the researchers towards the Furan ring for the development of newer chemical entities. Which are quite useful in the treatment of various life threatening diseases and disorders? Along with the development in the various methods used for the environmentally benign synthesis of Furan with profound biological activities.
.. allow them to interact easily with the biopolymers, possess potential activity with lower toxicities in the chemotherapeutic approach in man.
