Progress in Heterocyclic Chemistry (PHC), Volume 32, is the latest in this annual review series commissioned by the International Society of Heterocyclic Chemistry (ISHC). Volumes in the series contain both highlights of the previous year’s literature on heterocyclic chemistry and articles on new developing topics of particular interest to heterocyclic chemists.

The highlight chapters in Volume 32 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 of heterocyclic chemistry in 2019. As with previous volumes in the series, Volume 32 will enable academic and industrial chemists, and advanced students, to keep abreast of developments in heterocyclic chemistry in a convenient way.

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 2019 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; Organic and Analytical Chemists; Biochemists; Synthetic Chemists; Pharmaceutical Scientists; Chemical Engineers
