    A timely and authoritative treatise on the chemistry and diverse applications of chalcogenadiazoles — the five-membered rings containing two carbons, two nitrogens, and one chalcogen (an member of group 16, the oxygen family).

    The number of different chalcogenadiazoles and their structural diversity make it difficult to gain a clear understanding of the subject by studying an individual system in isolation. Chalcogenadiazoles: Chemistry and Applications emphasizes general features of this class of heterocyclic compounds. It concentrates on properties of each class of chalcogenadiazoles and their cycle-fused derivatives, considering chemical reactions of functional groups only in cases when these reactions permit to characterize the heterocycles as substituents or in respect of its aromaticity.

    Covering an important and rapidly developing branch of heterocyclic chemistry, this book is an essential resource for students, young professionals and experienced specialists in adjacent fields who are interested in:

    • Trends in the search for compounds with established bioactivity or use in medicine, as agrochemicals, or as reagents for environmental and biochemical analysis

    • Differences in classes of chalcogenadiazoles with respect to their degree of aromaticity and similar general concepts helpful to the nonspecialist

    • The effects of the chalcogen nature and the alternation manner of all atomic constituents on properties of these heterocyclic compounds

    Combining data from organic, biological, medicinal, materials science, and supramolecular chemistry, Chalcogenadiazoles: Chemistry and Applications is an important source of information not only for chemists in the fields of organic, inorganic, and organometallic chemistry, but also for anyone interested in the research and development of chalcogenadiazoles and related species.

    Zory Vlad Todres holds an MSc and a PhD in heterocyclic chemistry as well as a doctor habilitatus in physical organic chemistry. He is a regular author for CRC Press, and his books are much in demand and have been well received by the chemical community. Writing his monographs, he aspires to engraft new and practically important branches to the great tree of organic chemistry. Such monographs are Organic Ion-Radicals (2003), Organic Mechanochemistry (2006), and Ion-Radical Organic Chemistry (2009). Presently, he is working on a book entitled Organic Chemistry in Confinement. He was awarded a membership in the World Academy of Letters (the Einsteinian Chair of Science) and is listed in the Who’s Who of the United States and the United Kingdom (particularly in American Outstanding Professionals).
