Antifouling isocyanide compounds were found in halichondrid sponges and some phyllidiid nudibranchs (Fusetani, 2004).
Isocyanide terpenes are found in a variety of sponges and nudibranchs, but little is known about the toxicity of these compounds to ecologically relevant species.
In 1958 Ugi and his co-workers introduced various methods to form isocyanides by dehydrating formylamines, and from then on the isocyanides were well available.
The chemistry of the isocyanides is profoundly different from the rest of organic chemistry, because the functional group of the isocyanides is the only one that contains a divalent carbon atom [C.

Isocyanide, or isonitrile, chemistry attracted much attention at the end of the 20th century when the stable carbene began being used for diversity-oriented synthesis, high throughput screening, and drug discovery.
A new era of the isocyanide chemistry began in 1958, when the isocyanides became generally well available by dehydrating formylamines.
Exceptions are some solid phase reactions of three components, and it was recently demonstrated that the prefinal steps of the isocyanide MCRs are three component reactions that simultaneously undergo a-additions of cations and anions onto the isocyanides [23].
