The sulfonamide motif as a synthetic tool.
J CHEM RES
541 - 548.
Sulfonamides are well known motifs in medicinal chemistry, forming a large family of antibacterial agents as well as being found in numerous other drugs. The chemistry of this functional group, however, is less well documented. This review seeks to bring together the various applications and advantages of this motif in organic synthesis, which includes the sulfonamide as an activating group, protecting group, leaving group and as a molecular scaffold.
