About the Book
The Principles of Heterocyclic Chemistry was published with an aim to rationalize the subject in terms of the electronic theory of organic chemistry, which has been so helpful in promoting the understanding of aliphatic and benzenoid chemistry. This work received an enthusiastic reception as far as overall conception and accuracy were concerned. However, it was generally considered to contain more material than required by the student, and to be somewhat difficult to read because of the terse style. Hence the book has been revised thoroughly. Salient features in this revision • Text has been largely rewritten. • Essential organization has been retained, but the amount of factual matter reduced and the explanatory passages simplified in an endeavour to make the book easily digestible. • A limited quantity of important new work has been incorporated. We feel that the book contains the essential heterocyclic chemistry required by an Undergraduate or Graduate student for his course-work, and it is also hoped that it will be found stimulating by senior teachers and researchers.
