We review some reactions devised in our laboratory for the rapid assembly of pyridines and pyridones. Applications of the new methods in the total synthesis of lavendamycin, pyridoacridine and phenanthroizidine alkaloids (pyridine chemistry), and of camptothecin, nothapodytine B and streptonigrone (pyridone-forming reactions) are described.
