Abstract

The pyrrolo[2,3-d] pyrimidine ring systems are present in a variety of antibacterial/anticancer compounds. A scarcity of natural sources has made necessary the need for researchers to find more efficient methodologies to synthesize such compounds.1 The Edstrom research group is currently exploring new routes to these compounds, varying the protecting groups and the precursors used to make them.
