Heterocyclic compounds refer to a defining class of organic compounds with vast biological applications. Heterocyclic compounds are of great significance to life for the reason that they are abundantly present in nature, such as in the form of antibiotics, hormones, vitamins, and many more. Among heterocyclic compounds, nitrogen-based heterocycles are of special biological use because of their boundless medicinal and biological applications. Carbazoles are one of several nitrogen-based, biologically active heterocyclic compounds with the chemical formula C12H9N. Carbazole moiety has diverse pharmaceutical applications, which have attracted the interest of chemists as well as biologists to study more about these chemical compounds. This chapter compiles the synthesis of a variety of carbazole-derived compounds and their anti-inflammatory applications.

Keywords: Anti-inflammatory agents, Biological activity, Carbazoles, Drug discovery, Heterocycles, Heterocyclic compounds, Inflammation, Medicinal chemistry, Pharmaceuticals.
