The 1,3-oxazolidin-2-one nucleus is a popular heterocycle framework in synthetic organic chemistry, as well as in medicinal chemistry. This paper deals with the huge number of synthetic approaches addressed to the construction of this five-member ring, with a particular care for the mechanistic and stereochemical outcome.

Keywords: 1,3-Oxazolidin-2-one, cyclocarbamation reactions, 1,2-aminoalcohol, epoxides and aziridines, amino-acids, Curtius- rearrangement
