Recent applications of ring-closing metathesis in the synthesis of lactams and macrolactams

Author affiliations

Abstract

Lactams are an important class of compounds owing to their presence in numerous biologically active molecules of natural and unnatural nature. They are also highly versatile intermediates that can be elaborated into interesting compounds for potential use in organic and medicinal chemistry endeavors. In this feature article, the reader will be given a background to olefin metathesis followed by concise discussions (with selected examples) to report recent applications of ring-closing metathesis to form lactams and macrolactams from acyclic diene precursors, an area which continues to deposit attractive applications in the chemical literature en route or in the final step to the target molecules.
