Provides a one-volume overall picture of the largest of the classical divisions of organic chemistry, suitable for the graduate or advanced undergraduate student, as well as for research workers, both specialists in the field and those engaged in another discipline and requiring knowledge of heterocyclic chemistry. It represents Volume 9 of Comprehensive Heterocyclic Chemistry and utilizes the general chapters which appear in the 8-volume work. The highly systematic coverage given to the subject makes this the most authoritative one-volume account of modern heterocyclic chemistry available.
Of interest to graduate and advanced undergraduate students as well as specialist organic chemists and other scientists requiring knowledge of the subject.
Preliminaries. Structure of Heterocycles: Overview; six-membered rings; five-membered rings with one heteroatom; five-membered heterocycles with two or more heteroatoms; small and large rings. Reactivity of Heterocycles: Overview; six-membered rings; five-membered rings with one heteroatom; five-membered heterocycles with two or more heteroatoms; small and large rings. Synthesis of Heterocycles: Overview; monocyclic rings with one heteroatom; monocyclic rings with two or more heteroatoms; bicyclic ring systems without ring junction heteroatoms; tri- and poly-cyclic ring systems without ring junction heteroatoms; bi- and poly-cyclic ring systems with ring junction heteroatoms. Subject index. 'This volume is a remarkable distillation of the content of the 8-volume Comprehensive Heterocyclic Chemistry, of which it represents Volume 9. Not only has the material been condensed, it has also been reorganized so as to bring scattered information together. This book can be recommended for purchase by serious researchers and students.' Journal of the American Chemical Society. 'It is an excellent handbook and should be on the bookshelves of all those teaching or pursuing research into heterocyclic chemistry in universities or industry.' Chemistry in Britain.

Alan Katritzky was educated at Oxford and has held faculty positions at Cambridge and East Anglia before he migrated in 1980 to the University of Florida, where he was Kenan Professor and Director for the Institute for Heterocyclic Compounds. During his career he has trained more than 1000 graduate students and post-docs, and lectured and consulted world-wide. He led the team, which produced “Comprehensive Heterocyclic Chemistry” and its sequels, "CHEC-II" and "CHEC-III”, has edited “Advances in Heterocyclic Chemistry, Vols. 1 through 111” and conceived the plan for “Comprehensive Organic Functional Group Transformations”. He founded Arkat-USA, a non-profit organization which publishes “Archive for Organic Chemistry” (ARKIVOC) an electronic journal completely free to authors and readers at (www.arkat-usa.org). Honors include 14 honorary doctorates from 11 countries and membership of foreign membership of the National Academies of Britain, Catalonia, India, Poland, Russia and Slovenia.
