Chalcones have characteristic 1, 3-diaryl-2-propen-1-one backbone skeleton. Changes in their aryl ring have offered a high degree of diversity that has proven useful for the development of new medicinal agents with improved potency and lesser toxicity. This review article covers most of hetero-aryl chalcone and their derivatives that had shown broad spectrum of biological activity and also highlights the important pharmacological activities by variation of heteroaryl ring in chalcones skeleton containing five membered, six membered and fused heteroaryl ring with nitrogen, oxygen or sulphar as hetero atom.
