The pyrimidine nucleus is present in a number of important and bioactive organic compounds, thus the interest in densely functionalized pyrimidine building blocks to be used in synthesis. Recently, a publication from the group of Professor Moisés Romero-Ortega from the Universidad Autónoma del Estado de México (Toluca, Mexico) described novel chemistry aimed at preparing and using 2-trichloromethyl-4-chloropyrimidines for the synthesis of a wide range of substituted pyrimidines.
