A book aimed at organic and medicinal chemists, and pharmacologists. This volume is an updated survey of the literature of heterocyclic review articles. It discusses the synthesis, structure, and reactions of uracils with particular emphasis on their utility in heterocylcic synthesis. It also provides a survey of the behaviour of thiodaldehydes and their seleno and teleuro analogues, and of thionitroso compounds and their seleno analogues, as heterodienophiles. A key feature of this overview is its coverage of the Russian language literature as well as Western sources. This is a subject which has exploded in recent years with three quarters of the reference from the last decade.

During his career he has trained more than 1000 graduate students and post-docs, and lectured and consulted world-wide. He led the team, which produced "Comprehensive Heterocyclic Chemistry" and its sequels, "CHEC-II" and "CHEC-III", has edited "Advances in Heterocyclic Chemistry, Vols. 1 through 111" and conceived the plan for "Comprehensive Organic Functional Group Transformations". He founded Arkat-USA, a non-profit organization which publishes "Archive for Organic Chemistry" (ARKIVOC) an electronic journal completely free to authors and readers at (www.arkat-usa.org).
