In the past two decades, our laboratory has been actively engaged in the design and synthesis of novel heterosteroidal analogues. Three functional groups namely β-formylenamide, conjugated enone and β-formylvinyl halide were primarily employed in various reactions to afford a library of novel heterosteroids. The synthetic strategies have been concomitantly utilized in the relevant non-steroidal β-formylenamides, conjugated enones and β-formylvinyl halides.
