Abstract:


Recent advances in the environmentally benign synthesis of common heterocycles are described. This account features three main parts; the preparation of non-aromatic heterocycles, one-ring aromatic heterocycles and their condensed analogs. Due to the great variety of and high interest in these compounds, this work focuses on providing representative examples of the preparation of the target compounds.

Keywords:

Sustainable synthesis, non-aromatic heterocycles, aromatic heterocycles, condensed heterocycles, epoxides, aziridines, azetidines, pyrroles, indoles, quinolines, pyridines, pyrimidines, condensed heterocycles
