Highly functionalised pyroglutamates, molecules of interest for their biological uses and applications, are readily accessible from a bicyclic tetramic acid as a substrate for functionalisation at C3 and C4 of tetramic acid ring. These molecules have structural features common to pyroglutamate and pyrrolinone-containing natural products and this thesis particularly focuses on the development of novel routes to 3-substituted and 3,4-disubstituted pyroglutamic acid derivatives.
