Multicomponent Reaction (MCR)

Marcus Vinícius Nora de Souza

Abstract

Multicomponent reaction (MCR) is a type of reaction based on a mixture of three or more compounds or reagents leading only to one or a major molecule being able to form complex molecules with a high degree of control of the stereogenic centers in only one step. This methodology is also a useful tool in medicinal chemistry to produce a diversity of compounds for biological evaluation. Due to its importance, the exercises below focus on this technique.
