Since vitamins, hormones, antibiotics, pharmaceuticals, dyes and many other products all contain heterocycles, they play an important role in our everyday life.
The must-have reference in the field of heterocyclic compounds, comprehensively covering their synthesis, structure and chemical and physical properties in four volumes. It presents a wealth of information but stays userfriendly by focussing on the important facts.
An up-to-date source of high-quality information for all organic and medicinal chemists working in this field in industry and academia.
