Chalcones and their analogs have been an area of great interest in recent years. Numerous research papers have been published, and chalcones continue to show promise for new drug investigations. Researchers have explored new approaches for the synthesis of chalcone derivatives, which have revealed an array of pharmacological and biological effects. These chalcone derivatives have shown important antimicrobial, antifungal, anti-mycobacterial, antimalarial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antileishmanial anti-tumor, and anticancer properties. This review highlights the synthesis and pharmacological properties of chalcone derivatives.
