    Abstract

    4H-Quinolizin-4-ones are a unique class of heterocycle with valuable physicochemical properties and which are emerging as key pharmacophores for a range of biological targets. A tandem Horner–Wadsworth–Emmons olefination/cyclisation method has been developed to allow facile access to substituted 4H-quinolizin-4-ones encoded with a range of functional groups
