A simple and general approach to the synthesis of chemical libraries based on a universal anhydride template allows the preparation of large number of compounds. Various cyclic/acyclic amines, primary/secondary amines, differentially protected bifunctional amines were used as nucleophiles to react with anhydrides. The free carboxylic acid generated was then coupled with solid-bound amines. The facile and rapid generation of compounds through this multi-component assembly can be accomplished in a combinatorial parallel synthesis.
