Novel Flow Chemistry Application for Continuous Macrocyclisation

    Macrocyclic structures are common synthetic targets in drug discovery, interest is increasing in this field.    Macrocycles are common and broadly distributed in nature, and ∼20% of all known natural products from terrestrial and marine sources possess cyclic structures.   More than 100 macrocyclic compounds derived from natural products are used as commercial drugs, there is a continuing interest in exploring macrocyclic structures and macrocyclization reactions for the invention of new drugs.

    Macrocyclic compounds can be obtained using a variety of continuous flow reactions for the key ring-closing step.  This is an exciting area that flow chemistry is establishing its relevance towards
