Topic Synthesis of di-, tri a tetrasubstitted deazapurines, pyrimidines and related heterocycles thorugh the combination of C-H activations and cross-coupling reactions

Novel C-H activation reactions (arylations, aminations, borylations etc.) of purines, deazapurines, pyrimidines and some related fused heterocycles will be developed. These reactions will be utilized (in combination with C-C and/or C-X cross-coupling reactions) in the development of iterative regioselective syntheses of derivatives bearing multiple substituents. Finally, these methodologies will be applied for the synthesis of large series and libraries of derivatives for biological activity testing.
