Abstract : The saga of β-lactams triggered by the discovery of penicillin continues as an interesting area of research even today. The scientists are tirelessly working behind the synthesis of the β-lactams by applying modern synthetic approaches. The class of β-lactams enhances from natural penicillins to semisynthetic penicillins and even to designed semisynthetic penicillins. Few of these β-lactams and their derivatives were shown considerable therapeutic importance and accepted as drugs. Recently the modern concepts like computer assisted drug designing and insilico pharmacological studies to suggest the suitability of the molecule to be included in the class of drugs. The open minded scientists are extracting the active ingredients of the drugs explained in the alternative medicine texts which have proven curing abilities for the suitable modification that may lead to better drugs. This short review is on the research on β-lactams and the new designed semisynthetic penicillins Garcicillin and Garcinosporin.
