This microreview is devoted to recently reported methods for the synthesis of 4-quinolones including activated alkyne-based reactions, K2CO3/DIPEA-catalyzed reaction, Baylis–Hillman reaction, Pd-catalyzed Buchwald–Hartwig amination, intramolecular Houben–Hoesch reaction, tandem acyl transfer – cyclization of o-alkynoylanilines, fused heterocycle synthesis via double heteroannulation, enaminone-directed C–H amidation, and formation of 4-quinolone moiety as a part of natural products. Microreview covers literature from 2013 to 2017.
