A domino reaction is defined by one of the leaders in the field, Lutz Tietze, as a “transformation of two or more bond-forming reactions under identical reaction conditions, in which the latter transformations take place at the functionalities obtained in the former bond forming”.
This economical and efficient approach allows the use of transient and unstable species to build complex molecules within a single series of reactions.
