All books of heterocyclic chemistry - with the exception of one recent book - describe only synthesized heterocycles, but ignore dealing with those made by nature. This book provides a balanced, concise and informative account in the way life started and why nature selected to synthesize heterocycles, not only as a source of energy but also as reagents that affect a multitude of biological transformations. The text provides an up-to-date survey of the various types of heterocycles and describes their synthesis via classical tools as well as biosynthesis. This text also focuses on the application of heterocycles in the chemical industry as dyes, pigments, pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and catalysis. There is a brief chapter describes how to apply the principles of green chemistry in the area of biologically-relevant heterocycles. This book provides a unique overview of the subjects and is ideal for undergraduate and graduate students in organic chemistry as well as pharmaceutical and medicinal chemistry.
Mohamed Hilmy Elnagdi was born in Egypt 1941. He graduated in 1962 (Cairo University) where he also worked and obtained his M.Sc. (1966) and Ph.D. (1969) Diploma in Applied Chemistry (Japan), 1973 and D.Sc. (1982). Degrees. He was awarded The Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship at University of Bonn with Prof. H. Wamhoff and have several study leaves with plenty of German scientists. He also received fellowships from several institutions in Norway, USA and Japan. He worked at Cairo University as Professor of Organic Chemistry since 1980 and as visiting Professor to Kuwait University 1993-1999 and from 2003 till now. Prof. Elnagdi has specialized in the synthesis of polyfunctional heterocycles and got several national and regional research awards.
Kamal Usef Sadek was born in El-Minia (Egypt) and has received B.Sc. degree (honor) in applied chemistry from Assiut University (Egypt) in 1969. He obtained his M.Sc. and Ph.D. from Cairo University He was appointed as demonstrator in Minia University (1970). Since then he was appointed as Lecturer (1980), Associate Professor (1985) and full Professor (1990). In 1987 he was awarded the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation fellowship with Prof. W. Weigrebe in Regenesburg University and have several study leaves with Prof. M.Regitz of Kiserslautern University and Prof. H.H. Otto of Frieburg University. Currently, he is working in developing green technologies for the synthesis of biologically active heterocycles.
