2-Styrylchromones, although scarce in nature, constitute a group of oxygen heterocyclic compounds which have shown significant biological activities. Their transformation and the transformation of their 3-isoanalogues into other biologically active compounds have been exploited. This short review describes the most recent work on the synthesis, biological evaluation and transformation of 2- and 3-styrylchromones.
