Green Synthetic Approaches for Biologically Relevant Heterocycles, Second Edition, Volume One: Advanced Synthetic Techniques reviews this significant group of organic compounds within the context of sustainable methods and processes, expanding on the first edition with fully updated coverage and a whole range of new chapters. Volume One explores advanced synthetic techniques, with each chapter presenting in-depth coverage of various green protocols for the synthesis of a wide variety of bioactive heterocycles that are classified on the basis of ring-size and/or the presence of heteroatoms. Techniques covered range from high pressure cycloaddition reactions and microwave irradiation to sustainable one-pot domino reactions.

This updated edition is an essential resource on sustainable approaches for academic researchers, R&D professionals, and students working across medicinal, organic, natural product and green chemistry.

Key Features

  • Provides fully updated coverage of the field of greener heterocycle synthesis
  • Includes new chapters on varied multicomponent reactions, alongside both traditional and novel approaches
  • Presents information in an accessible style with an emphasis on sustainability


Organic, Natural Product, Synthetic and Green Chemists across both academia and industry
