Editorial Reviews


"Well into his fifth decade of authoring and editing research articles, books, and reference works on heterocyclic chemistry, Katritzky (Univ. of Florida) continues his bountiful production with this monograph. Three authors review and update the literature, and include references from the late 1990s though the late 2000s. Heterocyclic compounds are very numerous, as is the literature covering them. Given their importance in biochemistry, pharmaceutical chemistry, and the life sciences, this is an important reference work for academic and professional libraries. Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners."--CHOICE

About the Author

Alan Katritzky was educated at Oxford and has held faculty positions at Cambridge and East Anglia before he migrated in 1980 to the University of Florida, where he was Kenan Professor and Director for the Institute for Heterocyclic Compounds. During his career he has trained more than 1000 graduate students and post-docs, and lectured and consulted world-wide. He led the team, which produced "Comprehensive Heterocyclic Chemistry” and its sequels, "CHEC-II" and "CHEC-III”, has edited "Advances in Heterocyclic Chemistry, Vols. 1 through 111” and conceived the plan for "Comprehensive Organic Functional Group Transformations”. He founded Arkat-USA, a non-profit organization which publishes "Archive for Organic Chemistry” (ARKIVOC) an electronic journal completely free to authors and readers at (www.arkat-usa.org). Honors include 14 honorary doctorates from 11 countries and membership of foreign membership of the National Academies of Britain, Catalonia, India, Poland, Russia and Slovenia.

Chris Ramsden was born in Manchester, UK in 1946. He is a graduate of Sheffield University and received his PhD in 1970 for a thesis entitled 'Meso-ionic Compounds' (W. D. Ollis) and a DSc in 1990. Subsequently he was a Robert A. Welch Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Texas (with M. J. S. Dewar)(1971-3), working on the development and application of semi-empirical MO methods, and an ICI Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of East Anglia (with A. R. Katritzky)(1973-6), working on the synthesis of novel heterocycles. In 1976 he moved to the pharmaceutical industry and was Head of Medicinal Chemistry (1986-1992) at Rhone-Poulenc, London. He moved to Keele University as Professor of Organic Chemistry in 1992, where he is now Emeritus Professor. His research interests include the structure and preparation of novel heterocycles, three-centre bonding in the context of the chemistry of betaines and hypervalent species, and the properties of the enzyme tyrosinase and related ortho-quinone chemistry. He was an Editor-in-Chief of 'Comprehensive Heterocyclic Chemistry III' and a co-author of 'The Handbook of Heterocyclic Chemistry, 3rd Edn, 2010.

More About the Author

Viktor V. Zhdankin: was born in Ekaterinburg, Russian Federation. His M.S. (1978), Ph.D. (1981), and Doctor of Chemical Sciences (1986) degrees were earned at Moscow State University in the research laboratories of Professor Nikolay S. Zefirov. He moved to the University of Utah in 1990, where he worked for three years as Instructor of organic chemistry and Research Associate with Professor Peter J. Stang. In 1993, he joined the faculty of the University of Minnesota Duluth, where he is currently a Professor of Chemistry. He published over 220 scientific papers, edited several books, co-authored the Handbook of Heterocyclic Chemistry (3rd Edition, 2010), and authored a book on Hypervalent Iodine Chemistry (Wiley, November 2013). His main research interests are in the fields of synthetic and mechanistic organic chemistry of hypervalent main-group elements (iodine, xenon, selenium, sulfur, and phosphorus) and organofluorine chemistry. In 2011 he was a recipient of National Award of the American Chemical Society for Creative Research & Applications of Iodine Chemistry.
