4H-Quinolizin-4-ones are a unique class of heterocycle with valuable physicochemical properties and which are emerging as key pharmacophores for a range of biological targets. A tandem Horner-Wadsworth-Emmons olefination/cyclisation method has been developed to allow facile access to substituted 4H-quinolizin-4-ones encoded with a range of functional groups.
Formal homologation of sp(2)-hybridized boronic acids is achieved via cross-coupling of boronic acids with conjunctive haloaryl BMIDA components in the presence of a suitably balanced basic phase. The utility of this approach to provide a platform for diversity-oriented synthesis in discovery medicinal chemistry is demonstrated in the context of the(More)
