The book first looks at the synthesis of photochromic dihetarylethenes, such as perfluorocyclopentene-bridged dihetarylethenes, along with dithienylperhydrocyclopentenes and their heteroanalogs, like perhydrocyclopentenes, dithienylmaleic anhydrides, and dithienylmaleimides. It then discusses the McMurry reaction and the reactions between octafluorocyclopentene and lithium derivatives of thiophene. It also examines chemistry, structure, reactivity, and the pharmaceutical and agrochemical uses of of pyrido[1,2-a]azepines and their hydro derivatives. The book concludes with a summary of the synthesis, structure, reactivity, and practical significance of 2-amino-4H-pyrans.
This book will benefit graduate students and research workers in academic and industrial laboratories who want to gain a better understanding of heterocyclic chemistry.

Alan Katritzky was educated at Oxford and has held faculty positions at Cambridge and East Anglia before he migrated in 1980 to the University of Florida, where he was Kenan Professor and Director for the Institute for Heterocyclic Compounds. During his career he has trained more than 1000 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 111 and conceived the plan for "Comprehensive Organic Functional Group Transformations. He founded Arkat-USA, a non-profit organization which publishes "Archive for Organic Chemistry (ARKIVOC) an electronic journal completely free to authors and readers at (www.arkat-usa.org). Honors include 14 honorary doctorates from 11 countries and membership of foreign membership of the National Academies of Britain, Catalonia, India, Poland, Russia and Slovenia.
