Progress in Heterocyclic Chemistry: Volume 34, 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 developing topics of particular interest to heterocyclic chemists. Highlight chapters in Volume 34 are all written by leading researchers in their field, thus constituting a systematic survey of the important original material reported in the literature of heterocyclic chemistry in 2021. As with previous volumes in the series, Volume 34 will enable academic and industrial chemists and advanced students to keep abreast of developments in heterocyclic chemistry in a convenient way.

R Alan Aitken

Alan Aitken was born in the Dumfries and Galloway area of SW Scotland. He studied at the University of Edinburgh where he obtained a B.Sc. in 1979 and his Ph.D. in 1982 under the direction of Dr I. Gosney and Professor J. I. G. Cadogan. After spending two years as a Fulbright Scholar in the laboratories of Professor A. I. Meyers at Colorado State University he was awarded a Royal Society Warren Research Fellowship and moved in 1984 to the University of St Andrews where he is currently Reader in Chemistry. His research interests are in the area of synthetic and mechanistic organic chemistry including asymmetric synthesis, synthetic use of flash vacuum pyrolysis, heterocyclic chemistry, organophosphorus and organosulfur chemistry.
