Progress in Heterocyclic Chemistry, Volume 2, reports on important original material abstracted from the 1989 literature of heterocyclic chemistry. The chapters are organized according to ring size and the type of heteroatom contained. The text is supported by clear diagrams, references and a subject index.


For organic chemists involved in academic or industrial research as well as graduate students concerned with heterocyclic chemistry.

@qu:Heterocyclic compounds encompass over 60 per cent of all organic compounds, so even reviewing just one year's (1989) literature on the common ring system is a major task. The authors are therefore to be congratulated on presenting an enormous amount of material in a very concise and readable form... Clearly this book is essential reading for all who have an interest in heterocyclic chemistry. @source:Chemistry & Industry @qu:The chapters are essentially self-organized, but a substantial index is provided as a backup. This book is a useful tool in keeping up with a coplex, highly active, and important part of organic chemistry. @source:Journal of the American Chemical Society Volume 113 Number 7
