A new and versatile synthesis of imidazo[1,2-c]pyrimidines via a [4+1]-cycloaddition is described. The reported novel synthetic approach leads to pharmacologically interesting scaffolds containing three points of potential diversity, which previously were not accessible under conventional conditions. In addition, this novel synthetic procedure is amenable to the assembly of libraries with this interesting core structure.
