While N-hetereocycles have received significant attention in organic synthesis and other research fields, the chemistry of pyridazine, a six-membered aromatic ring with two adjacent nitrogen atoms, and its derivatives has been relatively little understood. This Synopsis describes recent progress made in the synthesis of pyridazine derivatives - particularly, pyridazin-3(2H)-ones - and their utility as efficient and recyclable functional group carriers for various important organic reactions.
