Progress in Heterocyclic Chemistry (PHC) is an annual review series commissioned by the International Society of Heterocyclic Chemistry (ISHC). The volumes in the series contain both highlights of the previous year's literature on heterocyclic chemistry and articles on new developing topics of interest to heterocyclic chemists.

The highlight chapters in Volume 8 are all written by leading researchers in their field and these chapters constitute a systematic survey of the important original material reported in the literature on heterocyclic chemistry in 1995. The volume also contains an article on Geminal Diazides of Heterocycles and an article on Radical Methodologies for the synthesis of heterocyclic compounds.

As with previous volumes in the series, Volume 8 will enable academic and industrial chemists, and advanced students to keep abreast of developments in heterocyclic chemistry in an effortless way.


For academics, industrial chemists, and advanced students interested in heterocyclic chemistry.
