From the last few years, dehydroacetic acid (DHA) has been found to show its immense contribution to the synthesis of various heterocyclic moieties. The present review reveals the various synthetic methods, developed from 2000 to 2015, to heterocyclic scaffolds considering DHA as starter. The present literature ensures the versatility of DHA for the synthesis of heterocyclic compounds, hence considered as versatile synthon.
