β-Lactams are possibly one of the best known and extensively investigated heterocyclic ring systems as a result of both their biological activity as antibiotics, and their utility as synthetic intermediates. Among the different synthetic approaches for the preparation of β-lactams, the Kinugasa reaction has caught the attention of the scientific community, highlighting the great synthetic potential of this reaction. This Special Issue will contain contributions discussing all the different aspects broadly indicated by the keywords. Review articles by experts in the field will also be welcome.
