Description

Heterocyclic chemistry is the largest of the classical divisions of organic chemistry. Heterocyclic compounds play a vital role in the metabolism of living cells. Their practical applications range from extensive clinical use to fields as diverse as agriculture, photography, biocide formulation and polymer science.

Written by leading scholars and industry experts, the Handbook of Heterocyclic Chemistry contains more than 1500 clearly drawn structures and reactions. The highly systematic coverage given to the subject makes this one of the most authoritative single-volume accounts of modern heterocyclic chemistry available.

Reviews

"Well into his fifth decade of authoring and editing research articles, books, and reference works on heterocyclic chemistry, Katritzky (Univ. of Florida) continues his bountiful production with this monograph… Three authors review and update the literature, and include references from the late 1990s though the late 2000s… Heterocyclic compounds are very numerous, as is the literature covering them. Given their importance in biochemistry, pharmaceutical chemistry, and the life sciences, this is an important reference work for academic and professional libraries… Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners."--CHOICE
