The Chemistry of Heterocyclic Compounds, since its inception, has been recognized as a cornerstone of heterocyclic chemistry. Each volume attempts to discuss all aspects – properties, synthesis, reactions, physiological and industrial significance – of a specific ring system. To keep the series up-to-date, supplementary volumes covering the recent literature on each individual ring system have been published. Many ring systems (such as pyridines and oxazoles) are treated in distinct books, each consisting of separate volumes or parts dealing with different individual topics. With all authors are recognized authorities, the Chemistry of Heterocyclic Chemistry is considered worldwide as the indispensable resource for organic, bioorganic, and medicinal chemists.
A volume in the Chemistry of Heterocyclic Compounds series, this book provides a summary of the chemistry of each of the six naphthyridine systems along with tables of known simple derivatives with original references. Each of the six naphthyridine systems are described in valuable detail and coverage includes: Primary synthetic methods from non-naphthyridine substrates; Chemistry and properties of the parent heterocycle and its simple alkyl derivatives; Formation and reactions of halogeno derivatives; formation and reactions of hydroxy, oxo, alkoxy, and related derivatives.
