Münchnones are mesoionic five-membered heterocycles, which play an important role in heterocycles as well as in organic chemistry. Since they were discovered by Huisgen in 1964, there has been growing interest in syntheses, properties and application of münchnones. One of the most significant properties of münchnones is that they can undergo cycloaddition reactions to unsaturated bonds as 1,3-dipoles. This reaction has become an important method for the synthesis of pyrroles and other heterocycles. Recently, remarkable progresses have been achieved in the synthesis of münchnones by means of organo-metallic reactions, the new reactive properties of münchnones have also been explored, and the application of münchnones in organic synthesis has been widely reported. In this review, these recent progresses in the chemistry of münchnone are summarized.

Key words: mü, nchones, mesoionic compounds, dipolar cycloaddition, heterocycles
