Abstract

The addition of various nucleophiles to a vinyl 1,2,4-oxadiazole is described. Following optimisation, individual protocols tuned for the use of each specific class of reagent have been developed to allow the installation of nitrogen, sulfur, oxygen, and carbon nucleophiles, and leading to the preparation of a series of compounds containing the pharmaceutically important oxadiazole motif.
