The improvement of new synthetic routes towards thiophene, oxazole, triazole, pyrimidine, pyridine, quinolone, coumarin, imidazopyrimidine, pyridoimidazole and triazolo[1,5-a] pyridine for their biological and medicinal exploration is an appealing vicinity for researchers. This review focuses on the utility of 1-(4-substituted-aminophenyl) ethanones and their derivatives as critical intermediates for the synthesis of these systems developed within the closing decade.

Keywords: 1-(4-substitutedaminophenyl) ethanones, heterocyclic synthesis, thiazole, pyridine, 2-aminothiophenes, nonlinear optical materials.
