A divergent synthetic pathway for pyrimidine-embedded medium-sized azacycles through an N-quaternizing strategy

A new divergent synthetic pathway for skeletally distinct pyrimidine-containing medium-sized azacycles was developed. Diversity-generating reactions via selective bond cleavages or migrations from N-quaternized intermediates were designed, and 14 discrete core skeletons were synthesized in an efficient manner. The skeletal diversity of the resulting molecular frameworks was confirmed by chemoinformatic analysis.
