Heterocyclic chemistry is one of the most important fields in organic chemistry, and has found widespread utility in the pharmaceutical and agricultural industries. This book includes a description of the heterocyclic reaction, the historical perspective, a mechanism for the reaction, variations and improvements on the reaction, and synthetic utilities of the reaction. The experimental details and references to the primary literature are also provided.
