Recent methods for the synthesis of indolizines (microreview)

  • Dmitrijs ČerņaksEmail author
A summary of the most recent approaches toward indolizine derivatives is discussed. The microreview covers the latest selected examples on the synthesis of indolizines that might be gathered in four distinct categories: cyclocondensations, cycloadditions, cyclization/eliminations, and cycloisomerizations.
