Progress in Heterocyclic Chemistry (PHC), is an annual review series commissioned by the International Society of Heterocyclic Chemistry (ISHC). Volumes in the series contain both highlights of the previous year's literature on heterocyclic chemistry and articles on new developing topics of particular interest to heterocyclic chemists. The highlight chapters in Volume 20 are all written by leading researchers in their field and these chapters constitute a systematic survey of the important original material reported in the literature of heterocyclic chemistry in 2007. Additional articles in this volume review '2-Indolylacyl radicals in the synthesis of indole compounds' and 'Cascade reactions of carbonyl ylides for heterocyclic synthesis'.

This volume of Progress in Heterocyclic Chemistry(PHC) is the thirteenth annual review of the literature, covering the work published on important heterocyclic ring systems during 2000. In this volume there are two specialized reviews. The first, by H. Ila, H. Junjappa and P.K. Mohanta, covers their work on annulation using ∝-oxoketene dithioacetals, a synthetic method that provides useful routes to an impressively wide range of fused heterocycles. The second, by R. N. Warrener, is on the synthesis of fused 7-azanorbornanes. The 7-azanorbornane structural unit is incorporated into a series of elegant polycyclic molecules with rigid geometry.

The subsequent chapters, arranged by increasing heterocycle ring size, review recent advances in the field of heterocyclic chemistry with emphasis on synthesis and reactions
