Chemistry of pyrimidinophanes: synthesis and applications: a review from 1990 until recently

Review Article


Pyrimidinophanes are macrocycles consisting of pyrimidine moieties bridged to each other with alkyl spacers. Most of the known pyrimidinophanes originate from pyrimidinic nucleobase uracil and its 5(6)-substituted derivatives. Diverse macrocyclic compounds with pyrimidine moieties have appeared during the last two decades, and in this review the synthesis and properties of the pyrimidinophanes studied have been described.
