Benzimidazole derivatives have shown hopeful activity in the treatment of several diseases, for this reason, the synthesis of novel benzimidazole remains a main focus for researchers. This review article summarizes the chemistry of different derivatives of benzimidazole along with their biological activities. The review article also covers the most active benzimidazole derivatives that have shown considerable pharmacological actions.
