Abstract

Oxetanes are valuable intermediates in organic synthesis, and strategic manipulations of this strained heterocycle continue to emerge. In this Synopsis, recent, distinct approaches to construct heterocyclic systems using oxetanes are described. These include ring expansion, ring opening, and C-2 functionalization.
