Benzimidazoles are heterocyclic compounds in which benzene is fused with five membered ring containing two hetero atoms. Both hetero atoms are nitrogen (N), which are present at non-adjacent position. It has broad spectrum of activity which are anti-ulcer, antitumor, antiviral and antibacterial agent and many more due to these biological effects it has drawn more interest in synthesis and derivatization of benzimidazole derivatives by modifying the antimicrobial activity. The benzimidazole moiety is a core structure we have focussed on the antibacterial and antimicrobial activity of the newly synthesized derivatives by suitable methods.
Key words: Benzimidazole, hetero atom, anti-bacterial, anti-microbial
