The combination of nucleophilic nitrenoids and gold-catalysis has rapidly emerged as a powerful tool in the assembling of different nitrogen-containing motifs. The research presented in this thesis describes the advances in the field and the exploration of pyrimidium \(N\)-heteroaryl aminides as building blocks in the formation of several fused imidazoheterocycles.
From the initial discovery of this reaction and its application in the synthesis of imidazo[1,2-a]pyrimidines, the scope of this convergent gold-catalysed strategy has been adapted to allow the access to fourteen classes of biologically relevant structures. The proposed mechanism and optimisation will be discussed alongside the accommodation of a wide range of useful functionalities difficult to introduce by other methodologies.
