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.

About the Author

Julio Alvarez-Builla received his PhD at the University Complutense and spent a postdoc stage with Professor A.R. Katritzky at the University of East Anglia. At present he is full professor of Organic Chemistry at the Faculty of Pharmacy of the University of Alcal?. He has strong interests in collaborating with Pharmaceutical industry, and in relation with that he has been the scientific director of the University's fine chemicals pilot plant facility from 1998 to 2008. His research interests include the chemistry of azinium N-ylides and N-aminides, the chemistry of nitrogen bridgehead heterocycles, and the synthesis of heterocyclic pharmaceutical products. Juan J. Vaquero received his degree in Chemistry from the Complutense University (Madrid) and the PhD degree in Organic Chemistry from the University of Alcal?. He was a NATO postdoctoral fellow with Professor Charles W. Rees at the Imperial College (London). In 1987, he joined the Department of Organic Chemistry of the University of Alcal? where he is a Full Professor Organic Chemistry. He acted as the Dean of the Faculty of Chemistry (2000-2006). His research interests include the chemistry of azonia heterocyclic systems, the synthesis of bioactive compounds targeting DNA and the total synthesis of natural alkaloids. Jos? Barluenga holds the chair of Organic Chemistry at the University of Oviedo, where he founded the Instituto Universitario de Qu?mica Organomet?lica "Enrique Moles" and is currently developing his research. During his career, Professor Barluenga has published more than 615 research articles and he has been the recipient of many awards including the Research Award of the "Alexander von Humboldt" Foundation, FRG (1989, First Edition), the Solvay Award from Spanish CEOE (1990), the 1st Spain Dupont Award, the Iberdrola Award for Science and Technology (1996), the Gold Medal from the Spanish Society of Chemistry (1999), the "Enrique Moles" National Award of Chemical Science and Technology from the Ministry of Education and Science (2001, First Edition) and the Rey Jaime I Award for Basic Research (2005).
