Progress in Heterocyclic Chemistry (PHC), Volume 27, 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 27 are all written by leading researchers and these chapters constitute a systematic survey of the important original material reported in the literature of heterocyclic chemistry in 2014. Additional articles in this volume are “The Use of Propargyl Vinyl Ethers in Heterocycle Synthesis” and “Recent Progress of Phosphonium Coupling in Heterocyclic and Medicinal Chemistry."
As with previous volumes in the series, Volume 27 will enable academic and industrial chemists, and advanced students, to keep abreast of developments in heterocyclic chemistry in a convenient way.
- Recognized as the premiere review of heterocyclic chemistry
- Includes contributions from leading researchers in the field
- Provides a systematic survey of the important 2014 heterocyclic chemistry literature
- Includes articles on new developing topics of interest to heterocyclic chemists
About the Author
Gordon Gribble is the Dartmouth Professor of Chemistry at Dartmouth College, Hanover, USA. His research program covers several areas of organic chemistry, most of which involve synthesis, including novel indole chemistry, triterpenoid synthesis, DNA intercalation, and new synthetic methodology. Prof Gribble also has a deep interest in naturally occurring organohalogen compounds, and in the chemistry of wine and wine making.John Arthur Joule did his BSc, MSc, and PhD degrees at The University of Manchester, obtaining his PhD in 1961. He then undertook post-doctoral work at Princeton University and Stanford University, before joining the academic staff of the Chemistry Department at The University of Manchester in 1963, where he is currently a Professor. In 1996 he received an RSC Medal for Heterocyclic Chemistry.
