AbstractThis dissertation is divided into five chapters, encompassing innovative synthetic contributions in the area of Darzens annulations, anionic-amino-Cope cascades, structural analysis of FDA-approved pharmaceuticals as well as book chapter contributions in highlighting synthetic contributions in oxirane and aziridine chemistry. Chapter 1 presents two-book chapter contributions made which highlight synthetic contributions made with oxiranes and aziridines. Part 1: focuses on synthetic contributions made with oxiranes (epoxides) from 2008-2018. Part II focuses on homologation approaches to access oxiranes and aziridines from carbonyl and imines. Chapter II presents two-published perspectives, published in the Journal of Medical Chemistry. Part I analyzes oxygen-heterocycles seen in FDA-approved pharmaceuticals. Part II analyzes the structural diversity in FDA-approved combination drugs. Chapter III: presents novel contributions made in the arena of anionic-amino-Cope rearrangements (Part I) and applications (Part II). Chapter IV presents novel contributions made with vinylogous (Aza)-Darzens annulations. Part I discusses an asymmetric-vinylogous Aza-Darzens protocol with a bromo-butenolide nucleophile. Part II describes phenyl sulfone-containing vinylogous (Aza)-Darzens routes. Chapter V describe mild protocols to obtain trisubstituted trifluoromethylthiolated (SCF3) aziridines and cyclopropanes.
