Abstract:


Multicomponentreactions (MCRs) are composed from three or more reagents in which the final product has all or most of the carbon atoms from its starting materials.These reactions represent, in the Medicinal Chemistry context, a great potential in the research for new bioactive compounds, since their productscan present great structural complexity. The aim of this review is to present the main multicomponent reactions since the original report by Strecker in 1850 from nowadays, coveringtheir evolution,highlightingtheir significance in the discovery of new bioactive compounds.The use of MCRs is, indeed, a growing field of interest in the synthesis of bioactive compounds and approved drugs, with several examples of commercially-available drugs that are (or can be) obtained through these protocols.

Keywords:

Multicomponent reactions, heterocycles, medicinal chemistry, drug syntheses, bioactive compounds, large-scale synthetic protocol.
