Over the last decades, many methods have been reported for the synthesis of selenium- heterocyclic scaffolds because of their interesting reactivities and applications in the medicinal as well as in the material chemistry. This review describes the recent numerous useful methodologies on C-Se bond formation reactions which were basically carried out at low and room temperature.

Keywords: Chalcogenation, Se-heterocyles, C-Se bond formation, 1, 3-selenazole, heterocyclic scaffolds, material chemistry.
