This book differs from others on name reactions in organic chemistry by focusing on their mechanisms and biological applications like Anti Cancer, Anti HIV and antimicrobial and some more. It covers over number of classical as well as contemporary name reactions. Biographical sketches for the chemists who discovered or developed those name reactions have been included. Each reaction is delineated by its detailed step-by-step, electron-pushing mechanism, supplemented with the original and the latest references, especially review articles.
The book is very useful to the researchers, post graduates and UG students. A Text Book of Heterocyclic Compounds and Biological Applications shows readers how to interpret the experimental data obtained from an organic reaction, and specifically how an organic reaction mechanism can be considered or rejected based on the analysis of the experimental evidence. Examining a series of selected examples of mechanisms, organic reaction mechanisms and biological applications focus on real cases and discuss them in detail, following the same methodology: introduction, experimental data and discussion. The examples are arranged to elucidate key aspects of organic reaction mechanisms. The authors employ all the types of information that the authors of the original work considered useful and necessary, including kinetic and thermodynamic data, isotopic labeling and organic reactivity. The book makes an excellent primer for advanced researchers and post graduate and undergraduates in chemistry who are preparing for exams and is also useful for graduate students and instructors.
