Chemistry as a central science is facing a steadily increasing demand for new chemical entities. Innovative solutions, in all kinds of disciplines that depend on chemistry, require new molecules with specific properties, and their societal consequences are fundamental and pioneering. However, these molecules not only demand a realistic structural space but also their feasibility poses challenges to synthetic chemists. Nowadays the question of how to perform a synthesis has become most crucial. In particular multicomponent reactions are masterpieces of synthetic efficiency and reaction design. These one-pot processes consist of concatenations of elementary organic reactions under similar conditions.
