Zirconium-mediated synthetic methods of a series of heterocyclic compounds were reviewed. Discussion was focused on the reactions including the other metals, such as Cu, Ni, Li, and so on. These enable us to synthesize a series of heterocycles having N, O, Si, S, Sn, etc. in the ring skeletons. The key point of the reaction is transmetalation from Zr to the other employed metals, which have a crucial role for reactivity and selectivity of the reaction.
