Chalcone is a secondary metabolite compound found in plants. Chalcones contain two aryl rings, namely ring A and B which connected to the α,β unsaturated ketones. Chalcone derivatives are synthesized by various substituent groups in both rings, as well as the types of rings. These variations make chalcone and its derivatives, have interesting bioactivity, one of which is antibacterial. This review is considered the chalcone-derived compounds that have antibacterial bioactivity, including methoxy, hydroxy, prenyl, and halogen groups in ring A or B. Besides, there are two forms of these rings as well such as pyrroly l-furany l-chalcones and indoly l-thiopheny l-chalcone. We hope this review is useful for the development of the synthesis of organic compounds and the discovery of new drug design.
