Fluorine in Heterocyclic Chemistry Volume 1 5-Membered Heterocycles and Macrocycles by Valentine Nenajdenko

Fluorine in Heterocyclic Chemistry Volume 1 5-Membered Heterocycles and Macrocycles


Fluorine in Heterocyclic Chemistry Volume 1 5-Membered Heterocycles and Macrocycles by Valentine Nenajdenko

This two-volume work combines comprehensive information on the chemistry of the fluorinated heterocycles. The material has been divided such that the first volume is dedicated to 5-membered fluorinated heterocycles and macrocycles, while the second volume combines data connected with the chemistry of fluorine containing 6-membered heterocycles. Both volumes will be of interest to synthetic organic chemists in general, and particularly for those colleagues working in the fields of heterocyclic-compound chemistry, materials chemistry, medicinal chemistry, and fluorine chemistry. All information is presented and classified clearly to be effective source for broad auditory of chemists. It will be interesting for scientists working in the field of inorganic and coordination chemistry. Fluorinated heterocycles are becoming increasingly important in many areas including the pharmaceutical industry, materials science and agriculture. The presence of fluorine can result in substantial functional changes in the biological as well as physicochemical properties of organic compounds. Incorporation of fluorine into drug molecules can greatly affect their physicochemical properties, such as bond strength, lipophilicity, bioavailability, conformation, electrostatic potential, dipole moment, pKa etc. as well as pharmacokinetic properties, such as tissue distribution, rate of metabolism and pharmacological properties, such as pharmacodynamics and toxicology.

About the Author

Valentine G. Nenajdenko was born in 1967 in Ivanovo, Russia. He graduated from Moscow State University (Lomonosov) in 1991. He received his Ph.D. degree under the supervision of Professor E.S. Balenkova in 1994 researching the synthesis and application of unsaturated CF3 ketones. In 2000 he received Dr. of Chemistry degree involving the chemistry of sulfonium and iminium salts. In 2003 he became full Professor of Organic Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry of Moscow State University. His scientific interests include organic synthesis, asymmetric catalysis, the chemistry of sulfur and fluorine containing compounds, heterocyclic chemistry, multicomponent reactions. He have been a supervisor of 12 postgraduate studies. Prof. Nenajdenko is head of the Scientific Committee and Jury of International Mendeleev Chemistry Olympiad. He was the winner of the Academiae Europeae Award in 1997, the Russian President Award in 1996, the Prize for the best scientific work at the Department of Chemistry of Moscow State University in 2001 and 2007, the Shuvalov Award in 2001, the Russian President Award in 2004, Russian Science Support Foundation in 2005, Moscow State University Awards in 2006, 2007 and 2008.

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

Lovereading tells me about new books before they hit the shelves, lets me find other authors I may like and has great prize draws!

Sheila Dale

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.

Judith Sharp

Ever purchased a book, read a few pages & thought I'm not going to enjoy this? Honest book reviews mean you'll never have that problem again

Jill Peters

You'll always find what you never knew you were looking for and you're always spoilt for choice.

Helen Jones

Why I love @lovereadinguk? It's in the name - as dedicated lovers of reading, they are perfect matchmakers for helping me find my next read!

Catherine Jenkins

I love the 'like for like' author recommendations, it's like an old friend whispering in your ear.
