 Benzothiazole (BTA) and its derivatives are among the most important heterocyclic compounds, widely found in natural commodities and pharmaceutical drugs. It possesses a large number of pharmacological properties, and many of its analogues have structural diversity, to contribute to the production of new medicinal drugs. BTA derivatives possess a broad spectrum of pharmacological activity. The development of medicinal chemistry containing BTA has been rapid and highly active. BTA chemicals are frequently used in medical care to address a wide variety of illnesses with good results. Current advancements in BTA-based compounds such as anticancer, antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antioxidant, anticonvulsant, anti-tuberculosis, antidiabetic, antimalarial, and other therapeutic agents are the focus of this review. New ideas are spurring the development of BTA-containing drugs that are more active, less toxic, and more effective for diagnosing diseases.
