N-substituted oligoglycines, also called “peptoids”, form a major class of pseudopeptides encompassing a wide range of structures and properties. Their inherent features make them useful in areas as diverse as medicinal chemistry, catalysis, and molecular recognition. In this review, the authors, with selected examples, show the wide range of properties of oligomeric peptoids tagged with heterocycles. It is also revealed how the imaginative structures created by synthetic chemists are exciting and varied, and, in which terms, their potential has just started to be addressed.
