This volume includes the third, and final, part of a trilogy on acyclonucleosides by E.S.H. El Ashry and Y. El Kilany which began in Volume 67. This chapter covers tri-, tetra-, and penta- seco-nucleosides. These compounds are of considerable interest due to their relationship to newer anti AIDS drugs. Other chapters deal with the use of organohypervalent iodine reagents in the synthesis of organic compounds, a review of the conformational analysis of saturated 6-membered oxygen containing rings, comprising the oxanes, the various dioxanes, trioxanes, and tetroxanes, and heteropentalenes with fused imidazoles of 1,2,4-triazole rings.

Alan Katritzky, educated at Oxford, held faculty positions at Cambridge and East Anglia before migrating in 1980 to the University of Florida, where he is Kenan Professor and Director for the Institute for Heterocyclic Compounds. He has trained some 800 graduate students and post-docs, and lectured and consulted world-wide. He led the team, which produced "Comprehensive Heterocyclic Chemistry" and its sequels, "CHEC-II" and "CHEC-III", has edited "Advances in Heterocyclic Chemistry, Vols. 1 through 100" and conceived the plan for "Comprehensive Organic Functional Group Transformations". He founded Arkat-USA, a non-profit which publishes "Archive for Organic Chemistry" (ARKIVOC) electronic journal completely free to authors and readers at (www.arkat-usa.org). Honors include 14 honorary doctorates from 11 countries and membership or foreign membership of the National Academies of Britain, Catalonia, India, Poland, Russia and Slovenia.
