It is clear the need for development of new drugs. Although, the increasing knowledge of the macromolecular mechanisms of several diseases allowed the identification of therapeutic targets, the development of drugs for these targets did not follow the same rate. Nowadays, the fast and efficient development of new drugs have been reached by used of Fragment-Based Drug Discovery (FBDD) strategies, which from a screened fragment with low potency (mM) a lead compound is obtained by optimization process. Many methodologies are being used to screening fragments considering the biological activity and drug-like characteristics. For this, the heteroaromatics compounds highlight as good fragments because of their physicochemical and electronic proprieties. Therefore, our work aim, using synthesis and chemical exploration of new heteroaromatic cores, obtain a library of fragments to use in development of bioactive compounds. (AU)
