β-Lactam macrocycles displayed major contributions in the filed of drug discovery. The chemical potentiality of β-lactam has proved their usefulness in the discovery of variety of conformationally restricted macrocycles. Macrocycles containing versatile functionalities derived from β-lactam have also been employed in the fields of supramolecular chemistry. In this review, attempts were made to summarize the recent methods for synthesis of potential β-lactam containing macrocycles.
