"Heterocycles in Life and Society" is an introduction to the
chemistry of heterocyclic compounds, focusing on their origin and
occurrence in nature, biochemical significance and wide range of
applications. Written in a readable and accessible style, the book
takes a multidisciplinary approach to this extremely important area
of organic chemistry.
Topics covered include an introduction to the structure and
properties of heterocycles; the key role of heterocycles in
important life processes such as the transfer of hereditary
information, how enzymes function, the storage and transport of
bioenergy, and photosynthesis; applications of heterocycles in
medicine, agriculture and industry; heterocycles in supramolecular
chemistry; the origin of heterocycles on primordial Earth; and how
heterocycles can help us solve 21st century challenges.
For this second edition, "Heterocycles in Life and Society" has
been completely revised and expanded, drawing on a decade of
innovation in heterocyclic chemistry. The new edition includes
discussions of the role of heterocycles in nanochemistry, green
chemistry, combinatorial chemistry, molecular devices and sensors,
and supramolecular chemistry. Impressive achievements include the
creation of various molecular devices, the recording and storage of
information, the preparation of new organic conductors, and new
effective drugs and pesticides with heterocyclic structures. Much
new light has been thrown on various life processes, while the
chemistry of heterocycles has expanded to include new types of
heterocyclic structures and reactions, and the use of heterocyclic
molecules as ionic liquids and proton sponges.
"Heterocycles in Life and Society" is an essential guide to this
important field for students and researchers in chemistry,
biochemistry, and drug discovery, and scientists at all levels
wishing to expand their scientific horizon.
