The N-heterosubstituted iminoacyl structural unit is encountered in a wide range of compounds, ranging from simple linear imine derivatives, to oxygen, nitrogen, and sulfur-bearing heterocyclics, through to less commonly encountered species containing chalcogens, other group V elements, or metalloids in a linear or cyclic setting. The present work briefly reviews the synthetic methods encountered in the chemical literature since 1995 in the synthesis of the above-mentioned structures. The main headings subdivide the chapter into sections dealing with a specific heteroatom attached to the imide nitrogen, such as N-haloimidic or N-oxyimidic derivatives. Within each section, a number of subsections describe different structural precursors and synthetic methods employed in the synthesis of these derivatives. It should be borne in mind that the present work covers recent publications only and a great body of work on the synthesis of N-heterosubstituted iminoacyl derivatives exists pre-1995. This chapter should therefore be consulted alongside COFGT (1995) (chapter 5.21). Due reference is made to COFGT (1995) where additional synthetic methods are known which have no mention in this chapter.
