Heterocycles are privileged structures in drug discovery and are widely represented among bioactive natural products. Fused azoles are of particular interest in this context, although their synthesis can often pose significant challenges. Recently, the group of Dr. Valery A. Osyanin at Samara State Technical University (Russian Federation) described a novel strategy for assembling the benzo[e]azolo[1,3]oxazine structural framework.

Dr. Osyanin said:
“The cascade aza-Michael/intramolecular nucleophilic substitution reaction constitutes an attractive synthetic strategy in o-quinone methide chemistry since it provides rapid and easy access to large libraries of
