Recently oxepine derivatives, especially the benzoxepine have been found to occupy an incredibly important position in medicinal and pharmaceutical industries. Various synthetic routes have been developed for the synthesis and functionalization of this class of compound. From his review, it is shown evidently that compounds containing oxepine framework have excellent biological activities and should be desirable in designing novel biological agents. This review x-rays the chemotherapeutic applications of oxepines and further highlight their privileged place in the design of pharmacological agents.
