This volume surveys the chemistry and heterocyclic syntheses of aminomethylenemalonates and their cyclic sters. Early reviews in this field merely touched on certain aspects of the related chemistry. This is the first in-depth systematic treatment of the subject. The material is of particular importance in medicinal chemistry as derivatives of aminomethylene malonates are key intermediates in the synthesis of antimalarial agents. The literature reviewed has led to the discovery of nalidixic acid and its derivatives, norfloxacin and ciprofloxacin, as well as the new quinolones that are active against AIDS-related Legionella spp.

The latest volume in the Advances in Heterocyclic Chemistry series.About the Author:
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.
