In recent years, considerable attention has been devoted to the synthesis of selenium-containing heterocycles because of their interesting reactivities and potential pharmaceutical applications. The significant starting materials for the selenium-containing heterocycles synthesis are selenoamides, selenoureas, selenazadienes, and isoselenocyanates. This review article introduces the developed synthetic methods mainly on our findings.
