In this review recent uses of the inexpensive and commercially available bismuth(III) salts in organic chemistry will be highlighted. Their application to the development of new processes or synthetic routes that lead to compounds of pharmaceutical interest will be matter of discussion. It will focus on bismuth(III) salt-mediated reactions involving the preparation of non-heterocyclic compounds such as aliphatics and alicyclics, monocyclic and polycyclic aromatics, amino acids and peptides, terpenes and steroids.

Keywords: Bismuth(III) salts, aliphatics, alicyclics, aromatics, amino acids, peptides, terpenes, steroids, pharmaceutical interest
