Heterocyclic Compounds - Structures and Nomenclature and Organic Chemistry of Heterocycles 1.0
Heterocycles are parts of:
* Biomolecules (nucleic bases in your DNA and RNA; amino acids Histidine and Tryptophan)
* Important drugs (80% of top-selling drugs contain heterocycles: benzodiazepines, quinine, penicillin, etc.)
* and even Food (sugar has heterocyclic rings too!)
That's why it's so useful to know the structures of major heterocyclic compounds for molecular biologists, pharmacists, organic chemists and for...
