This book provides a unique overview of the subject. The first half of Heterocyclic Chemistry covers general properties of heterocyclic compounds and general methods for their preparation. This provides the basis for understanding the chemistry of indivudal ring systems that is described in later chapters. This edition has been completely revised to reflect the changes that have occurred in the field since the publication of the second edition in 1992.
