Acridine ring can be found in molecules used in many different spheres, including industry and medicine. Nowadays, even acridines with antibacterial activity are of research interest due to increasing bacterial resistance. Some acridine derivatives showed antimalarial or antiviral activity. Acridine derivatives were also investigated for antitumor activity due to the interaction with topoisomerase II and DNA base pairs. Considering these possible uses of acridine derivatives, this work was made as overview of all significant structure characteristics for specific action of these compounds.
