Established in 1960, "Advances in Heterocyclic Chemistry" aims to be the definitive serial in the area - one of great importance to organic chemists, polymer chemists and most biological scientists. Each volume of "Advances in Heterocyclic Chemistry" contains an index and each chapter includes references. The compounds covered play a vital role in many fields: heterocyclic intermediates are being widely used in organic synthesis; furan, pyrrole and thiopene are anticipated to be emitted into the atmosphere in significant amounts from the fuel conversion facilities - atmospheric and environmental chemists need to acquaint themselves with the chemistry of these compounds; in the field of biology, heterocyclic compounds are found everywhere - carbohydrates, chlorophyll, and heme are all heterocyclic; heterocycles form the sites of reaction in many enzymes and coenzymes; heredity is ultimately the particular sequence of attachment of six heterocyclicrings to the long chains of nucleic acids; medicines are heterocyclic compounds.

Alan Katritzky was educated at Oxford and has held faculty positions at Cambridge and East Anglia before he migrated in 1980 to the University of Florida, where he was Kenan Professor and Director for the Institute for Heterocyclic Compounds. 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). Honors include 14 honorary doctorates from 11 countries and membership of foreign membership of the National Academies of Britain, Catalonia, India, Poland, Russia and Slovenia.
