Hardbound. Since its publication in 1984, Comprehensive Heterocyclic Chemistry (CHEC) has become the standard work on the subject, indispensable to all serious readers in the multitudinous areas where heterocycles are employed. Comprehensive Heterocyclic Chemistry II has two major aims: to report in the enormous advances in the subject of the last decade and to extend the coverage into areas where CHEC left significant gaps. The latter includes particularly saturated and partially saturated compounds, rings containing less common heteroatoms, and many classes of bicyclic and polycyclic systems. Material included in CHEC is, for the most part, not repeated in CHEC II and the two works are designed to be used together.

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.
Eric Scriven was educated in the UK and appointed lecturer in organic chemistry at the University of Salford in 1971. He joined Reilly Industries in 1979, and was Head of Research & Development 1991-2003. He is now Publishing Editor of Arkivoc and is based at the Department of Chemistry, University of Florida in Gainesville. His research interests are in heterocyclic chemistry, especially pyridines. He has over 100 publications and patents in heterocyclic chemistry. He has also published and consulted in the field of technology management. He was a founding editor (with Hans Suschitzky) of Progress in Heterocyclic Chemistry now in its 25th year. He has collaborated with Alan Katritzky and others as an Editor-in-Chief of Comprehensive Heterocyclic Chemistry 2nd and 3rd editions. He has edited two other works, Azides and Nitrenes (1984), and Pyridines (2013).
1997 The second edition of Comprehensive Heterocyclic Chemistry provides...an overview and will be an invaluable tool for all organic chemists until well into the next millennium. The information is well presented with adequate mechanistic discussion and good structural formulae. -- Chemistry & Industry
1997 With this large set Pergamon Press continues its efforts to present broad, scholarly overviews of major areas of chemical research. Comprehensive Heterocyclic Chemistry II (CHEC-II) is a "sequel" to 1984's Comprehensive Heterocyclic Chemistry...Together these two sets offer chemists an alternative means of accessing the formidable literature dealing with heterocyclic substances. An interesting feature of CHEC-II is its unique method of providing literature references...the reference (87TL2827) translates at Tetrahedron Letters, 1987, page 2827.... In a work that contains over 50 000 total references, this is a useful time-saving device.... Its logical organization and text-based approach make it easier for nonspecialists and advanced students to consult, and its indexes are thorough and very helpful. -- J. Am. Chem. Soc.
1998 The vital roles played by heterocycles has contributed to the importance of this area of chemistry. The set Comprehensive Heterocyclic Chemistry has now been updated only twelve years after the first edition. The 9 volume editors and the three editors-in-chief have done a very good job unifying the contributions of the authors....consulting Comprehensive Heterocyclic Chemistry I and II before starting and while working on a new research project is highly recommended. Clearly Comprehensive Heterocyclic Chemistry II is a must for all chemistry libraries and for all those research groups employing heterocyclic chemistry. Also libraries used by scientists working on biological problems, on natural products or in material sciences should have access to Comprehensive Heterocyclic II. Therefore each science library should have a copy of the new edition...the authors, volume-editors and editor-in-chief should be congratulated for their efforts. -- Synthesis
1998 This set is composed of monographic chapters logically organized by ring size and heteroatom content... All authors are experts in their respective areas of research, and the series is packed with informative structural drawings and equations that allow for quick referencing. More than 80,000 subject entries have been categorically indexed. There is little overlap in content with the previous series, Comprehensive Heterocyclic Chemistry. This valuable treatise is truly a treasure to all who are involved with research and education in heterocyclic chemistry. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals. -- CHOICE
1999 ...a truly comprehensive review, covering every area of heterocyclic chemistry, from 3-membered species to 10-membered and larger ones.
The review is edited by Alan Katritzky, Charles Rees and Eric Scriven, and each volume contains 20-40 papers from the leading chemists in each area of heterocyclic chemistry.... Each chapter describes in detail the structures, thermodynamics, reactivities and applications of a range of chemicals within a particular class, starting with aziridines and azirines and ending with 10-membered or larger rings with more than one heteroatom. The work is illustrated throughout with chemical structures and reaction schemes, and should prove invaluable to any chemist working in the field of heterocyclics. -- Speciality Chemicals
