This review presents a systematic and comprehensive survey of the methods of preparation and the chemical reactivity of cyanoacetamide derivatives. These compounds are important intermediates for the synthesis of a variety of otherwise difficult to obtain synthetically useful and novel heterocyclic systems.
Cyanoacetanilide, thiophene, pyrazole, thiazole, pyridine, pyridazine, pyrimidine, heterocycles
