Heterocyclic compounds play a vital role in the metabolism of living cells. Their practical applications range from extensive clinical use to fields as diverse as agriculture, photography, biocide formulation and polymer science.
Written by leading scholars and industry experts, the Handbook of Heterocyclic Chemistry contains more than 1500 clearly drawn structures and reactions. The highly systematic coverage given to the subject makes this one of the most authoritative single-volume accounts of modern heterocyclic chemistry available.
-Covers the structure, reactivity and synthesis of all heterocyclic compounds as distilled from the larger 15-volume reference work
-Saves researchers time when they require important information on heterocycles--speeding them to thousands of clearly drawn chemical structures and pertinent reviews by leading experts
-Features 35% new material to compliment the completely revised text

"Well into his fifth decade of authoring and editing research articles, books, and reference works on heterocyclic chemistry, Katritzky (Univ. of Florida) continues his bountiful production with this monograph. Three authors review and update the literature, and include references from the late 1990s though the late 2000s. Heterocyclic compounds are very numerous, as is the literature covering them. Given their importance in biochemistry, pharmaceutical chemistry, and the life sciences, this is an important reference work for academic and professional libraries. Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners."--CHOICEAbout the Author:
Alan Katritzky, educated at Oxford, held faculty positions at Cambridge and East Anglia before migrating in 1980 to the University of Florida, where he is Kenan Professor and Director for the Institute for Heterocyclic Compounds. He has trained some 800 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 100 and conceived the plan for Comprehensive Organic Functional Group Transformations . He founded Arkat-USA, a non-profit which publishes Archive for Organic Chemistry (ARKIVOC) electronic journal completely free to authors and readers at (www.arkat-usa.org). Honors include 14 honorary doctorates from 11 countries and membership or foreign membership of the National Academies of Britain, Catalonia, India, Poland, Russia and Slovenia.
