Synthetic Strategies Towards Therapeutically Relevant Tailored Macrocycles
The normally used synthetic approaches toward macrocyclization join full scale lactonization, macrolactamization, transition metal catalysed cross coupling, ring-closing metathesis, and click reaction, among others. Picked continuous examples of macrocyclic synthesis of natural products and druglike macrocycles with noteworthy natural significance are highlighted in each class and outline the general engineered systems for the synthesis of macrocycles. The synthesis of macrocyclic compounds incorporating natural products with differing complexities by ring closing metathesis is depicted. Twelve to huge rings that have been orchestrated in moderate to great yields and the synthesis of larger rings as a part of bi-cyclic or poly-cyclic frameworks are likewise depicted in this review.
