Iodine-assisted Synthesis of Six- and Seven-Membered Heterocycles covers both the existing and the latest methods for the synthesis of various six and seven membered heterocycles using iodine. Iodine has been reported as a potent catalyst for numerous organic conversions and is an excellent substitute for heavy metal reagents making the research in this area of interest to those looking to synthesize heterocycles in more efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly ways. Covering an important and rapidly growing branch of heterocyclic chemistry, this book allows users easy access to the synthetic protocols for the synthesis of heterocycles, acting as a guide for how to make these important compounds employed as agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals and veterinary products, using particular reagents. This book will therefore be of interest to students, pharmacologists, biochemists, organic and medicinal chemists.
