An innovative and efficient reagent- and scaffold-based diversity oriented synthesis (DOS) of a fragment set was developed for fragment-based drug discovery (FBDD) programs. Twelve diverse, functionalized and bicyclic scaffolds were rapidly accessed by adopting a convenient synthetic toolkit around three privileged azine cores in order to effectively modulate biomolecules. These structures are characterized by both key motifs for interacting with diverse biological targets via hydrogen bonds and useful points of growth for subsequent fragment optimization.
