Progress in Heterocyclic Chemistry (PHC), Volume 30, the latest in this annual review series commissioned by the International Society of Heterocyclic Chemistry (ISHC), contains both highlights of the previous year’s literature on heterocyclic chemistry and articles on new and developing topics of interest. Chapters in this updated volume are all written by leading researchers in their field, providing a systematic survey of the important, original material reported in literature in 2017. As with previous volumes in the series, this update will enable academics, industrial chemists and advanced students to keep abreast of developments in heterocyclic chemistry in a convenient resource.

Key Features

  • Recognized as the premiere review of heterocyclic chemistry
  • Includes contributions from leading researchers in the field
  • Provides a systematic survey of the important 2016 heterocyclic chemistry literature
  • Presents articles on new and developing topics of interest to heterocyclic chemists


Heterocyclic, Medicinal and Natural Product Chemists working in academia, Government laboratories, and industry. Given the wide breadth of heterocyclic chemistry, there is a vast secondary audience of scientists from other disciplines, including Organic and Analytical Chemists, Biochemists, Synthetic Chemists, Pharmaceutical Scientists and Chemical Engineers
