β-Oxodithioesters: a new frontier for diverse heterocyclic architectures

Author affiliations

Abstract

Utilization of the fascinating properties of β-oxodithioesters as building blocks in heterocyclic frameworks was started a few decades ago. Its similarity and dissimilarity with β-ketoesters in terms of its synthesis or as a substrate towards synthesis makes it an interesting and emerging field of synthetic organic chemistry. Tuning of catalysts and counter substrates towards selective utilization of its multiple reacting sites was summarized in the following discussion. A diverse range of monocyclic and polycyclic heterocycles with several different heteroatoms is plotted in an easy and reader friendly manner.
