Privileged scaffolds in synthesis: 2,5-piperazinediones as templates for the preparation of structurally diverse heterocycles

Author affiliations

Abstract

2,5-Piperazinediones (2,5-diketopiperazines, DKPs) can be viewed as privileged building blocks for the synthesis of heterocyclic systems. This tutorial review aims at underscoring the large number and structural variety of nitrogen heterocycles that are available by suitable manipulation of DKP starting materials, including many bioactive compounds and natural products.
