To modify in their nucleus, they form different derivatives of quinoxaline which contains antimicrobial activity. To modify in their structure shows a wide variety of new therapeutic agents having better potency and lesser toxicity. This article is shows to review history, chemistry, synthesis and the derivatives of quinoxaline which shows antimicrobial activity.
