Xiao-Feng Wu was born in 1985 in China. He studied chemistry in Zhejiang Sci-Tech University (ZSTU), where he obtained his BSc degree in science in 2007. In the same year, he moved to Rennes 1 University in France and worked with Prof C. Darcel on iron-catalyzed reactions. After earning his Master’s degree in 2009, he joined Matthias Beller’s group in the Leibniz Institute for Catalysis (LIKAT) in Germany, where he completed his PhD thesis in January 2012. He subsequently began independent research at ZSTU and LIKAT. His research interests include carbonylation reactions, synthesis of heterocycles and the catalytic application of cheap metals. He was also a Fellow of the Max-Buchner-Forschungsstiftung.
The 4(3H)-quinazolinone is a frequently encountered heterocycle with broad applications including antimalarial, antitumor, anticonvulsant, fungicidal, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory. The current review article will briefly outline the new routes and strategies for the synthesis of valuable 4(3H)-quinazolinones.
