Perimidines are peri-naphtho-fused derivatives of pyrimidine. They are of particular interest as they are a rare example of an azine in which the lone pair of electrons of a pyrrole-like nitrogen participates in the π-system of the molecule. Perimidine is an interesting class of heterocyclic compounds. Various synthetic analogs of perimidines have been prepared and evaluated for many pharmacological activities in different models with desired findings. They exhibit biological activities as antitumor, antiulcer, antimicrobial and antifungal agents. This review is an attempt to organize the synthesis and chemical reactions of perimidine analogs reported till date systematically since 1955. It should be noted that this review is the first one that includes the preparation and reactions of the perimidine ring.
