Recent synthesis and utilization of enamines as precursors for heterocyclic and carbocyclic compounds are reviewed. Two general synthetic routes for preparation of enamines based on condensation and addition reactions. Enamines and azaenamines can be used as building blocks for carbocyclic, five- and six-membered heterocyclic as well as fused heterocyclic compounds.
