Abstract

(Figure Presented) Three is not a crowd: A method for the construction of Imidazopyridine, imidazoquinoline, and imidazoisoquinoline frameworks has been developed. The synthetic utility of this method was demonstrated in a highly efficient one-pot synthesis of the drugs alpidem and Zolpidem (see scheme).
