Heterocyclic chemistry is an expanding subject, thanks to the research currently being done in the field. Heterocyclic components have many diverse applications in pharmacy, medicine, agriculture and other life sciences, so there is a constant need for updated information. This fourth edition retains many of the features that have proved successful in prior editions. It consists of 11 comprehensive chapters which discuss the heterocyclic components ring by ring with an emphasis on the stereochemistry of reactions and their mechanisms. Each chapter is very well referenced, with a thoroughly updated bibliography and contains a set of self assessment problems at the end for the reader to answer. The book is intended for use as a textbook on courses in heterocyclic chemistry, but it is also relevant to biochemistry, pharmacy and medicine, and will be a valuable addition to any medical or life science library.
