Raney Nickel-Assisted Synthesis of Heterocycles covers the synthesis of heterocycles using Raney nickel. The book focuses on the use of Raney-Ni, a common catalyst in hydrogenation reaction and its uses in the synthesis and preparation of heterocycles. Furthermore, it explains how the development of new approaches and strategic deployments in known approaches for the formation of complex heterocyclic compounds continue to drive the field of synthetic organic chemistry, along with updates on efforts to prepare heterocycles through the development of new and efficient synthetic transformations.
Heterocyclic chemistry is an inexhaustible source of novel compounds, providing the most diverse chemical, physical and biological properties through the design of a wide range of combinations of carbon, hydrogen and heteroatoms. Significant focus has been paid to novel approaches to the formation of heterocyclic compounds, which are of practical use acting as modifiers and additives in a wide range of industries such as reprography, plastics, cosmetics, vulcanization accelerators, solvents, antioxidants and information storage.
