The heterocyclic fused ring quinazolinone has drawn an enormous consideration owing to its expanded functions in the sector of pharmaceutical chemistry. Quinazolinone is reported for its varied organic actions and compound with complete substitutions furnish at the side of information of a goal with working out of the molecular sorts that will work together with the goal receptors. Quinazolinones is taken into account as a very important chemical for the synthesis of quite a lot of physiological significance and pharmacological utilized molecule.The broad and potent activity of quinazolinone has established it as one of the biologically important scaffolds. This article is an effort to highlight the importance of the quinazolinone in the present context and the promise they hold for the future.
