Benzothiazole and its derivative are recognized as the most important heterocyclic compounds. This series of compounds is of particular interests. It has various kinds of pharmacological properties and has been included in many kinds of natural products and pharmaceutical agents. The broad spectrum of pharmacological activity in individual benzothiazole derivative enables it to serve as unique and valuable scaffolds for experimental drug design. It is already known that benzothiazole and its derivative has various biological applications including anticancer, antimicrobial, anticonvulsant, antiviral, antidiabetic, antipsychotic, antiinflammatory, analgesic, fungicidal and diuretic. Its derivatives also have many applications in polymer chemistry, dyes, drugs, and silver photography as well as rubber industry.
Various benzothiazole-benzamides synthesized were evaluated for their analgesic and antidepressant activities.
