Resumen

Throughout human history, bacteria and fungi have caused infections that are difficult to combat. For this reason, countless research groups have developed novel compounds to solve this problem. Thiazole and benzothiazole are present in different structures with interesting biological effects and are used to develop new effective antimicrobial agents. Moreover, nitrogen atoms that are present in this heterocycle allow for coordination with various metals, forming metal complexes that enhance the biological activity of organic ligands that are often used as commercial drugs. This bibliographical review summarizes the copper complexes that use thiazole and benzothiazole as ligands and that report efficient antimicrobial activity against different bacteria and fungi.
