"The authors have done a wonderful job of collating and making sense of this diverse area of chemical literature. In summary, this is a superb book. I am unlikely to read whole chapters in a single sitting, but I will be browsing if for years to come, learning something new every time. Everyone who is interested in the synthesis of nitrogen heterocycles should have access to this book." Mark Elliot , Lecturer in Organic Chemistry at the School of Chemistry, Cardiff University, UK
"The volume represents an enormous amount of synthetic work that is very carefully reviewed on more than 420 pages."
* Provides detailed comparisons of various synthetic approaches using carbohydrate starting materials, helping the chemist to quickly appreciate the strengths and weaknesses of a particular approach.
* Includes the main experimental details employed in the synthesis, helping the chemist to employ the same experiments in their own work
