Medicinal chemistry

Organic building blocks are organic molecules that are well furnished, the basic components for organic synthesis. They are used for molecular architectures such as organic molecular constructs, supramolecular complexes, metal-organic frameworks and nanoparticles. In medicinal chemistry, they are selected for the use in modular synthesis of drug candidates. And organic building blocks should be equipped with one or more handles so that they can be experimentally useful for the modular drug or drug candidate assembly.

Organic chemistry

The chemists use the 'build–couple–pair' strategy of organic synthesis, which entails preparing molecular building blocks that contain several chemical groups. Some of these groups react in the first step of the synthesis to couple the building blocks together. Once all the different blocks have been coupled, the remaining groups react with others found in the same intermediate molecule. 

Material chemistry

The chemical building block (CBB) is a molecule which can be converted to various secondary chemicals and intermediates, and, in turn, into a broad range of different downstream uses. The simplicity of manufacture greatly promotes their application in material industry due to the fact that organic building blocks are processable either as the starting materials or as a precursor. More importantly, the material's optical and electronic properties is tunable with the help of the large building block library as well as the enormous versatility of organic chemistry which has allowed the different applications in various areas.
