Heterocyclic chemistry is a rapidly expanding branch of organic chemistry. Nitrogen, sulphur and oxygen are the most common heteroatoms present in the heterocyclic ring. Nitrogen containing heterocycles are widely distributed in nature and are the constituents of diverse group of essential molecules from antibiotics to vitamins and are a vital part of nucleic acids. Literature survey indicated that pyrimidine derivatives have a wide range of pharmacological activities making them popular candidates for drug discovery protocols. Synthetic derivatives of pyrimidines have been shown to have antihyperuricemic, anti cancer, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, antioxidant, anticonvulsant, anti tubercular, antibiotic, analgesic, antipyretic, antihypertensive, antihistaminic, antiallergic, antileishmanial, antidiabetic, herbicidal, central nervous system depressant, and calcium channel blocking activities to name a few. Pyrimidine derivatives will continue to be a source of new drugs to treat the ever increasing burden of diseases. Some of the important biological activities are described in this review.
