The Chemistry of Heterocycles: Structure, Activity, and Applicationsprovides a detailed guide to the chemistry, behavior, and potential of these important structures. Beginning with an introduction to the topic, the book presents a practical guide to international nomenclature, including discussions of fused ring systems, heteroatoms with abnormal valences, and bridged, spiro, and polycyclic heterocycles.

Three membered heterocycles are then the focus of Chapter Three, where structural and thermodynamic properties, importance in natural products, medicines, and materials, and important aspects, such as strain, basicity, and reactivity of three membered nitrogen heterocycles are discussed.

Chapters Four through Eight follow the same format, covering over 100 key heterocycle structures, from Azetidines, Pyrroles and Pyridines, to Benzoxepines and Oxocanes. Finally, Chapter Nine explores cutting-edge advances in the development of Phosphorous and Selenium based heterocycles.

Drawing on the expert knowledge of its highly experienced authors, the book is a practical tool for all those studying and working with heterocycles across a range of disciplines.

  • Provides clear, detailed information on each heterocyclic group, including structural features, such as ring strain, basicity, synthesis, and reactivity towards electrophilic and nucleophilic reagents
  • Highlights the latest advances in the field, including phosphorous and selenium-based heterocycles that are supported by numerous illustrations
  • Includes details of functionalized heterocycles used as synthons for the construction of various arenes and heteroarenes
Further to his superannuation as Dy. Director for the Central Drug Research Institute, Lucknow, UP, India, a world class, premier research Institute for drug development, Prof Ram became Emeritus professor and served various academic institutions for 10 years. Besides research experience, he has also earned 18 years of experience teach...
